I'm thinking of writing some software that could be of use to field
biologists and ameteur naturalists. I have only vague ideas right now,
but I'd like to make something that helps you keep organized lists of
species you've seen.
Does anyone know where I can find lists of North American species in
ELECTRONIC form? Plants, birds, herps, mammals, insects, etc.
Actually, it doesn't have to be just North America, but that's what I'm
interested in right now.
The Expert Center for Taxonomic Identification at the University of Amsterdam
is working in this area. Their first "publication" is "Birds of Europe" on a
CD-ROM with software for NeXT, color Mac, and 386 with VGA. Contact
