CiteULike is a free service to help you to store, organise and share the scholarly papers you are reading. When you see a paper on the web that interests you, you can click one button and have it added to your personal library. CiteULike automatically extracts the citation details, so there's no need to type them in yourself. It all works from within your web browser so there's no need to install any software. Because your library is stored on the server, you can access it from any computer with an Internet connection.


A commercial package that enables to asses the risk of pest establishing in a new location and the potential success or failure of a biological control agent from the current locations.

Collection Space

Corema - Collection and Research Management


Corema is a flexible and fully featured software package for all types of biological collections. The system can be used by institutions, societies and private collections such as natural history museums, herbaria and zoological gardens.


deegree - Free Software for Spatial Data Infrastructures

deegree is a Java Framework offering the main building blocks for Spatial Data Infrastructures. Its entire architecture is developed using standards of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).


An Information System for Characterization and DEtermination of EctoMYcorrhizae

The goal is
• to offer a online database system for multiple usage and therewith dissemination of expert knowledge especially by providing public access to database generated identification keys, natural language descriptions and illustrations of ectomycorrhizae
• to promote common standards on descriptive data connected with taxonomic names of ectomycorrhizae to facilitate interoperability and data exchange

DELIA - The DELTA Integrator

DELIA, the DELTA Integrator, extends the utility of DELTA format files by providing functionality that the (separate) CSIRO DELTA System software package can't. It provides a way to manage multiple datasets coded in DELTA and is designed to integrate with and complement the existing DELTA System suite of programs. It is designed for those DELTA users who are interested in managing their data in an integrated environment. We found only a beta version available.

DELTA Intkey tutorial

This is particularly clear and concise tutorial on the DELTA Intkey sofware for interactive identification. PDF document by A. Spooner and A. Chapman (western Autralian Herbarium, Department of Environment and Conservation).


The DELTA System is an integrated set of programs based on the DELTA format. The facilities available include the generation and typesetting of descriptions and conventional keys, conversion of DELTA data for use by classification programs, and the construction of Intkey packages for interactive identification and information retrieval.


DesktopGarp is a software package for biodiversity and ecologic research that allows the user to predict and analyze species distributions. GARP tries, interactively, to find non-random correlations between the presence and absence of the species and the values of the environmental parameters, using several types of rules. Each rule type implements a different method for building species prediction models. GARP as input takes enivonmental data and species occurrence localities. It generates random absence data.


DIALOBIS (DIALOgue Biological Identification System)

Dialobis Edition offers individual authors, companies and Publishing houses the possibility to publish scientific relevant documents - Monographs, Dissertations, Doctoral/Post doctoral thesis, Reports, Annual Reports, Congress Report, and Corporate identity - in electronic form on CD-ROM or DVD.

Our popular scientific CD’s are produced under the auspices of Dialobis (Dialogue Biological Identification System) - Software. Detailed information is put together at different pages.

Digital Morphology

Digital Taxonomy Software

Digital Taxonomy intends to provide a range of links on software, methodologies, standards, data sources, and projects relatedto biodiversity data management, with emphasis on open source and free softwaretools for biodiversity informatics.


DIVA-GIS is a free and open source geographic information system (GIS) to make maps of species distribution data and analyze these data.

DIVA-GIS Annapurna

Another version of the same DIVA-GIS programme.

Diversity Workbench

The Diversity Workbench is work in progress, aiming at developing a set of information models and application components that collaborate through agreed software interfaces. That is, each component of the Workbench applications uses services from other applications, but at the same time does not need to know about the internal design and implementation of them (encapsulation principle). The goal is increased reuse and collaboration across project and national borders.

DiversityDescriptions (DeltaAccess)

A SQL interface to DELTA, the Description Language for Taxonomy, implemented in Microsoft Access 97, 2000, and 2002 (= XP). DeltaAccess can be used in 3 ways: a) You can use DeltaAccess simply as a module to import DELTA coded text files into a database of your choice and then write an independent application for that database (e. g. a web interface). b) You can keep your data in DELTA coded text files, and use DeltaAccess as a one-way import tool to analyze your data (incl. cross-tabulations, and charts), print form sheets to edit your data off-line, or to generate dynamic html/www output. c) You can use DeltaAccess as the central data repository around which your work is organized.


The Diversity Mobile Wiki is a platform for information networks in the context of DiversityMobile (for mobile devices and smartphones), the Diversity Workbench and the DaltOn framework. Currently it is focused on a DFG-funded project "Setting up an Information Network on Biological Research Data gained in the Field up to the Sustainable Storage in a Primary Data Repository (I-B-F)".
