The foundation of biodiversity research and management is correctly identifying and naming species. This database is a register of marine species in Europe, linked with a bibliography of identification guides, register of taxonomic experts and locations of collections of reference specimens, and an Information Pack on European marine biodiversity. The species register is novel in its geographic extent, range of taxa covered. It is anticipated that the register will become a standard reference (and technological tool) for marine biodiversity training, research and management in Europe.
The ERMS web site is not being updated at present, pending the outcome of the ENBI project negotiations (29 October 2002)
