FishBase is a relational database with fish species information for research scientists, fisheries managers, zoologists, etc. FishBase on the web contains practically all fish species known to science. FishBase was developed at the WorldFish Center in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations ( FAO) and many other partners, and with support from the European Commission ( EC). Since 2001 FishBase is supported by a consortium of nine research institutions.
The Code guides zoologists in arriving at correct taxonomic names for organisms. It is not a list of approved names. PDFs of the 1987 Official List and its 2001 Supplement are online as are updates for 2001-.
The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ provides taxonomic, conservation status and distribution information on plants, fungi and animals that have been globally evaluated using the IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria. This system is designed to determine the relative risk of extinction, and the main purpose of the IUCN Red List is to catalogue and highlight those plants and animals that are facing a higher risk of global extinction. This website has good search features, large photo gallery, listings of initiatives, news, and links to related resources.
From April 1, 2015, the UC San Diego Library has arranged for a two-year trial period of over 26,000 videos available through Kanopy. The videos come from leading producers such as the BBC, California Newsreel, Criterion Collection, First Run Features, Kino Lorber and PBS, with more content added each year. Many of the films are from independent and specialty producers, with a focus on documentary films. Use is limited to currently enrolled UCSD students, employees, and faculty, staff. Faculty may screen these films in the classroom and they may also be used across campus to non-paying audiences, such as organizations and clubs, training, and in residence life.
The Zoological Record database provides references and abstracts for over 6,500 zoological journals, books, newsletters, selected dissertations, review annuals, & conference proceedings back to 1864. It covers the traditional areas of zoology more comprehensively than BIOSIS Previews (such as ecology, physiology, systematics & taxonomy, evolution, life history, behavior, conservation, nutrition, reproduction, morphology & zoogeography), but it excludes or covers selectively the more experimental & applied topics (such as biochemistry, economic biology, laboratory animal research, & immunology).
