European Register of Marine Species

  • Lack of updates
Another project aimed at biodiversity, the European Register of Marine Species aims to “produce a register of marine species in Europe, linked with a bibliography of identification guides, register of taxonomic experts, locations of collections of reference specimens, and an Information Pack on European marine biodiversity.” Whew! Okay, that’s the good news. The bad news is that the site appears not to have been updated since 2002. Could it be that this site, aimed at encouraging biodiversity is itself in danger of going extinct? Yikes, let’s hope not. Despite a lack of updates, the European Register of Marine Species has a lot to offer, with an impressive collection of links and an impressive collection of species descriptions. Keep your fingers crossed here.
