Taxonomic Information

Several taxonomic data systems, species registers, nomenclatures and taxonomy-related projects contribute to the LifeWatch Taxonomic Backbone. They all help to make the Taxonomic Backbone more complete, either by an active collaboration to fill gaps, opening their data system for data exchange or by making their data accessible through web services.
