This collection management software is made for botanical collections. It comes with a user friendly interface and many strong features. It has a long history of many stable version releases, adding new features steadily. It has an integrated system using Microsoft word for designing labels with or without bar-codes. It has an option to export data to Internet friendly formats including ASP web pages, TSA, REMIB, and Darwin Core version 2. It allows for management of loans and requests, and includes a geo-referencing system.


HyperNiche is a software for nonparametric regression, providing a flexible tool for multiplicative habitat modelling, habitat models where the predictors are combined multiplicatively rather than additively.

IndExs – Index of Exsiccatae

"IndExs - Index of Exsiccatae" is a bibliography of exsiccatal series. With more than 2050 data entries it is nearly complete. "IndExs" comprises information on titles, abbreviations and bibliography of exsiccatae. Exsiccatae are defined here as "published, uniform, numbered sets of preserved specimens distributed with printed labels" (Pfister 1985).

International Plant Names Index (IPNI)


The International Plant Names Index (IPNI) is a database of the names and associated basic bibliographical details of all seed plants, ferns and fern allies. Its goal is to eliminate the need for repeated reference to primary sources for basic bibliographic information about plant names. The data are freely available and are gradually being standardized and checked. IPNI will be a dynamic resource, depending on direct contributions by all members of the botanical community.



JabRef is an open source bibliography reference manager. The native file format used by JabRef is BibTeX, the standard LaTeX bibliography format. JabRef runs on the Java VM (version 1.4.2 or greater), and should work equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.


JUICE Determine species response curves on environmental gradients, allowing the determination of species optimum and also niche width (tolerance), and identifying species as generalist or specialist.

LIAS – A Global Information System for Lichenized and Non-Lichenized Ascomycetes

LIAS is a multi-authored information system for the collection and distribution of descriptive and other biodiversity data on lichens and non-lichenized ascomycetes. The goal is

* to provide a working space for cooperation and collaboration of experts on ascomycetes in the Internet

Linnaeus II


Linnaeus II is an innovative multifunctional research tool for systematists and biodiversity researchers, facilitating biodiversity documentation and species identification.

Linnaeus II was developed by ETI BioInformatics at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The software package, available for both Windows and Mac OS X, allows the creation of taxonomic databases, optimizes the construction of easy-to-use identification keys, expedites the display and comparison of distribution patterns, and promotes the use of taxonomic data for biodiversity studies.

The software can also be used to publish completed information systems on CD-ROM / DVD-ROM or make them available on the Web.

LoLA. Library of Location Algorithms

LoLA is designed as a software system comprising the algorithmic methods known in location planning. LoLA consists of a GUI (graphical user interface), a text based interface, and a programming interface which is designed to enable the users of LoLA to write their own C++ programs using algorithms from the LoLA -libraries.


Lucid is a flexible and powerful knowledge management tool that helps users make an identification or diagnosis. Lucid3 is an entirely new implementation of the Lucid family of products, providing new features requested by Lucid users and improving the handling of many common functions. The Lucid3 system comprises a Builder and Player for creating and deploying effective and powerful identification and diagnostic keys. The Lucid3 Builder allows an expert in a group of entities (plants, animals, diseases, minerals, archaeological artifacts etc) to create a key that can be deployed over the World Wide Web.


Lucid3 - On-Line Player

The Online Player joins the other two Player options for Lucid3 keys – the Lucid3 Application Player and the Lucid3 Applet – to provide a great service to our clients and your end-users.


Lysandra is a software for creating keys and database on different groups of living organisms.



Mantis is a biological database manager that features the ability to store taxonomic and specimen data, images and sounds, and it has built in managers of citations, specimen loans, and addresses. It has been designed by a practising taxonomist, for taxonomists. It is also a tool for conservationists who want to keep tract of species distribution or create simple identification tools. The emphasis of its design is on quick data entry and painless exploration of data. Mantis has a number of tools that facilitate species description, generation of taxonomic catalogues, or mapping of species distribution.

The aim of a World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) is to provide an authoritative and comprehensive list of names of marine organisms, including information on synonymy. While highest priority goes to valid names, other names in use are included so that this register can serve as a guide to interpret taxonomic literature.


Maxent is a free software based on the maximum-entropy approach for species habitat modeling. This software takes as input a set of layers or environmental variables (such as elevation, precipitation, etc.) and produces a model of the range of the given species. It uses species georeferenced occurrence locations ( presence-only data) which makes it very useful for taxonomists.



MEKA is an interactive Multiple-Entry Key Algorithm to enable rapid identification of biological specimens. Earlier versions of the program used a command-line interface. The version offered here is the first version developed to run under Windows. MEKA is controlled by mouse clicks; no text is entered. This approach allows very rapid access to program functions.
