  • Catalogue of Diatom Names (1421)

    The Catalogue of Diatom Names is now available on-line at the California Academy of Sciences. This project, over 10 years in the making, is a database of all diatom genus, species and infraspecific names, and is a compilation of Van Landingham’s Catalogue as well as the New Species File of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, the Index Nominum Algarum of Paul Silva at the University of California, Berkeley, and names not found in these works. In contains over 62,000 names. A searchable bibliography of over 12,000 records is also available. (10/2/2007)

  • Amphibian Species of the World (826)

    Maintained by the Herpetology Department at the Americn Museum of Natural History, this incredibly comprehensive database of amphibians includes mention of over 35,000 species. Not only packed with information, however, the database is also easily navigable by either searching or exploring. "There are two finding aids, SEARCH and the EXPLORE. These allow you to search on any 4-letter string (excluding such generally used terms such as frog, salamander, caecilian, newt, et al.) SEARCH will search either on taxonomic names (active or synonyms) or geographic place names." Each species account includes the class, order, family, and genus, as well as mention of the common name and the species' distribution. A great resource for those researching this fascinating class of animals. From The NSDL Scout Report for the Life Sciences, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2003. (4/30/2004)

  • All Catfish Species Inventory (932)

    The All Catfish Species Inventory (ACSI) serves to "facilitate the discovery, description and dissemination of knowledge of all catfish species by a global consortium of taxonomists and systematists." Contributed to by ichthyologists around the world, this Web site provides a useful portal to catfish resources and information. Features include a listing of type specimen locations, a guide to current phylogenetic studies and other projects, distribution maps, catfish news and announcements, and more. Catfish families and the researchers who study them are organized in a table, with links to additional tables that break down by genera. The site also contains an excellent photo gallery, including a page devoted to catfish oddities.From The NSDL Scout Report for the Life Sciences, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2002. http://scout.wisc.edu/ (2/7/2003)

  • North Cascades National Park: List of Aquatic Invertebrates (805)

    A list of aquatic invertebrates collected from high lakes within the North Cascades National Park Service Complex (NOCA) and from mid-order streams in NOCA and the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. This list includes records from parts of Skagit, Whatcom, Chelan and Snohomish counties. These records were compiled from several aquatic biomonitoring projects. All taxa on the list are represented by voucher specimens stored at the North Cascades National Park Research Station in Newhalem, WA. (10/23/2002)

  • Pennsylvania Aquatic Flies Are Us (817)

    Provides the Trichoptera and Plecoptera species that are currently known to occur in Pennsylvania with GIS county maps and their North American state or province occurrence. There are close to 1000 maps on this site. Fact sheet on native mussels at Presque Isle, Erie, PA and a flash movie of mayflies (Hexagenia spp.) on Doppler Radar emerging from Lake Erie at Erie, PA.

  • North American Stonefly List (1758)


  • Saskatchewan aquatic insects page (1023)

    Developed and maintained by Dale Parker, AquaTax Consulting, this site focuses on the aquatic macroinvertebrates inhabiting Saskatchewan, Canada. General information pertaining to provincial geography, macroinvertebrate collecting, insect life cycles and identification and classification discussions are provided. Ecologies, life histories, illustrated family level taxonomic keys and species lists for the major macroinvertebrate groups occurring in Saskatchewan are also included. A searchable database produces interactive generic and species level distribution maps for the more than 1200 taxa of macroinvertebrates found in Saskatchewan and adds more detailed information on selected species.
