Catalogue of Life

"The Catalogue of Life (CoL) is the nearest thing to a comprehensive catalogue of all known species of organisms on Earth. Continuous progress is made towards completion, and this edition contains 1,639,016 living and 5,763 extinct species. Please note that this is probably just over three quarters of the world's known species. This means that for many groups it continues to be deficient, and users will notice that many species are still missing from the Catalogue.

Emporio Celestial de Conocimientos Benévolos

"El Emporio celestial de conocimientos benévolos es una cierta enciclopedia china ficcionada por el escritor argentino Jorge Luis Borges en el ensayo El idioma analítico de John Wilkins. (...) Dice Borges en dicho relato: '(...) notoriamente no hay clasificación del universo que no sea arbitraria y conjetural. La razón es muy simple: no sabemos qué cosa es el universo'. (...) Esta lista, cuyo 'descubrimiento' Borges atribuye a Franz Kuhn, ha originado una multiplicidad de comentarios filosóficos y literarios, como el inicio del prefacio de Las palabras y las cosas, de Michel Foucault.

Thesaurus for Soil Invertebrate Trait-based Approaches

"The T-SITA proposes a non-exhaustive, semantically structured, list of traits and ecological preferences. Terms are organized into a conceptual hierarchical tree with their fathers and sons ('Browse hierarchy' tab). Each term is conceptually included into its father term. For instance, the 'Reproduction type' trait term was included in the father term 'Physiology'. It means that the concept linked to the 'Reproduction type' term is included into the concept linked to the 'Physiology' term. 'Reproduction type' has two son terms: 'Asexual reproduction' and 'Sexual reproduction'.

Tesauro de Biología Animal

"El Tesauro ICYT de Biología Animal, desarrollado en el marco de dicho proyecto, nació de la necesidad concreta de normalizar, actualizar y estructurar los términos científicos utilizados para el análisis documental en el campo de la Biología Animal. No existiendo ningún otro tesauro sobre este tema en lengua española, era preciso proceder a su creación, considerándose esta opción más adecuada que la traducción y adaptación de un tesauro en lengua extranjera, debido a que se adaptaba mejor a las necesidades concretas de la mencionada base de datos.

"The ICYT Thesaurus of Animal Biology, developed within the framework of this project, was born from the concrete need to standardize, update and structure the scientific terms used for documentary analysis in the field of Animal Biology.There is no other thesaurus on this This option was more appropriate than the translation and adaptation of a thesaurus in a foreign language, because it was better adapted to the specific needs of that database.

Agrotezaver: Flora in Favna

"Prek svetovnega spleta (WWW) je dostopno nešteto seznamov rastlin in živali, in to v najrazličnejših jezikih. V slovenščini je prek spleta na voljo zelo malo tovrstnih informacij, zlasti za živali. Obstajajo sicer nekateri geografsko določeni pregledi po posameznih vrstah, npr. za Triglavski narodni park ali za nekatere naravne rezervate, ni pa najti takih seznamov, kjer bi se uporabniki lahko poučili tako o slovenskih kot hkrati latinskih in angleških imenih.
