ZooBank: The World Register of Animal Names
Title: ZooBank: The World Register of Animal Names
Title abbreviated: ZooBank
Title alternative: The Prototype Online Registry for Zoological Nomenclature
Creator: ICZN = International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature; Thomson Zoological Ltd
Abstract: This is the ZooBank prototype, providing access to 1.5 million scientific names of animals. This prototype is based on Thomson Zoological's "Index of Organism Names", which is the electronic archive of Zoological Record, going back to 1978 (vol. 115). A project to digitise the remaining volumes of Zoological Record back to 1864 (vol. 1), is nearing completion. These names will therefore soon also be available through ZooBank. The next version of ZooBank, coming later in 2007, will provide an interface for the voluntary submission of animal names. If a mandatory registration system is eventually adopted by the zoological community, we anticipate that in the very near future ZooBank will become a complete, authoritative, record of all scientific names of animals.
