Abstract: The Azorean Biodiversity Portal is a unique resource for fundamental research in systematics, biodiversity, education and conservation management in the Azores (Portugal). It also provides an original platform for biogeographical and macroecological research on islands. The species database (ATLANTIS) is comprised of spatial grid-based (500x500 m) presence-absence information for ca. 5000 species, drawing on a thorough literature survey (dating back to the 19th Century) as well as on unpublished records from recent intensive field surveys in the Azores. Many species are also accompanied by images from collections and/or live specimen. [Information of the supplier]
