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.






BioOffice features an integrated database and geographic information system, options for (spatial) data query and analysis, individual configuration, and easy data exchange between users.


Earth Cape



PaleoTax is a database management system to record taxonomic, geographic and stratigraphic data in biology and palaeontology and dedicated to taxonomists. It allows users to give a complete overview on the literature, taxa, localities, stratigraphy, material etc. of one field of research (as a family, an order or a phylum). Instead taking data from the literature, sample data or field observations can be recorded. Recorded data can be assessed or exported as RTF or HTML document.


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.

Specify 6

Specify is a research software application, database, and network interface for biological collections information. It manages specimen data such as descriptions of collecting locations, participants and determination histories as well as information about collections transactions such as loans, exchanges, accessions and gifts. Version 6 includes a much more user friendly interface. It supports multiple user connections to MySQL or a local connection to it's own internal database system. The reporting tools are also very flexible and well represented.

Recorder 6

Recorder 6 is a powerful, standards based tool for collection and management of biological records. It includes data entry, reporting and distribution mapping functionality. The NBN (National Biodiversity Network) data model used is well documented, open and accessible. Recorder 6 is designed to be a flexible tool. It can collate records coming from many different sources. Once records are held within a copy of Recorder 6 they can be edited, shared and managed, whilst, retaining a transparent link back to their original identity.

It also offers an optional web hosting platform that allows institutions to host their collections online for web visitors to browse through. The web hosting is provided at an additional cost.


Biodiverse is a tool for the spatial analysis of diversity using indices based on taxonomic, phylogenetic and matrix-based (e.g. genetic distance) relationships, as well as related environmental and temporal variations. Biodiverse supports four processes: (1) linked visualisation of data distributions in geographic, taxonomic, phylogenetic and matrix spaces; (2) spatial moving window analyses including richness, endemism, phylogenetic diversity and beta diversity; (3) spatially constrained agglomerative cluster analyses; and (4) randomisations for hypothesis testing. Biodiverse is open-source and supports user developed extensions.
