OBIS: Ocean Biogeographic Information System

Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) is "a user-friendly, web-based provider of global geo-referenced information on accurately identified marine species" developed by the international research program Census of Marine Life. OBIS can be used to integrate information from a host of stand-alone databases including biological, physical, and chemical oceanographic data on a selected species and geographic range of interest. A couple of the sections are still under construction, but this does not affect the ability to use the database. This Web site may provide an important source of accurate information for scientists researching a particular species or location. This site is also reviewed in the July 26, 2002 Scout Report.
