There are approximately 17,000 terrestrial, 500 freshwater, and 5,500 marine species of plants and animals in Hawai‘i. Bishop Museum, which has the world’s largest biological collections for Hawai‘i (about 4 million specimens) is conducting field surveys to document the distribution of these organisms and is organizing information from its collections and the associated scientific literature into comprehensive computerized databases. This information will be used to assist natural resource agencies in the proper management of Hawaii’s precious and rich biota for years to come. ... [Information of the supplier]
The project “Austrian fungi Database“ has the aim to document extensively presence and distribution of fungi in Austria as well as to present and analyse the available data. It is an Austrian-wide cooperation of numerous professional and amateur mycologists and institutions collecting distribution data or maintaining fungal collections. Coordination is done by the Austrian Mycological Society. The online-version of the database offers the possibility to view distribution maps of over 7.800 fungal taxa and to retrieve the active data status of over 310.000 records coming from more than 7.000 different localities throughout Austria. Besides data on locality and date of collection as exact as possible, each data set comprises important information on habitat and substrate of the records, on determination and scientific documentation of the finds as well as on origin and source of the data stored viz. presently over 5 million single data. Further, on these web pages there are data summaries and graphical displays of the parameters covered by the database for single fungal species ("Profile") as well as for administrative and geographic units (provinces, districts, communities, regions, mapping grid squares) or for the total data set. All data lists and diagrams, as well as distribution maps and distribution data are directly generated out of the database. Project collaboration, especially communication of new records, is highly welcome. ... [Information of the supplier]
