Databases

Describes databases available online related to invasive animal species. See Resource Library - Databases for general resources, other species, expertise, and geographic based information.

Invasive Animals

Database: Cactus Moth Detection and Monitoring Network (CMDMN)
Host: Mississippi State University, Geosystems Research Institute.
Scope: Partnership of of various groups to monitor the distribution of the cactus moth. Volunteer monitors from public and private land management units, garden clubs and Master Gardeners monitor the spread of the moth, cactus populations and report observations. The data will be used to support modeling efforts to better predict likely locations for new pricklypear cactus and cactus moth, helping guide surveys. This is the first step of an Early Detection and Rapid Response (EDRR) approach.

Database: Database of Island Invasive Species Eradications
Host: Island Conservation; Invasive Species Specialist Group; University of Auckland.
Scope: DIISE is a centralized database covering all of the recorded invasive vertebrate eradications on islands and an important tool in helping improve the quality of eradications.

Database: Feral.org.au
Host: Australian Government Bureau of Rural Sciences; Pest Animal Control Cooperative Research Centre; University of Canberra
Scope: Contains bibliographic database of books, reports, and articles on invasive animals in Australia. Provides abstracts and links to full text. Also contains species profiles.

Database: Invasive Mammals Bibliography
Host: Massey University and University of Waikato
Scope: Provides scientific information on the world's invasive mammals. Contains bibliographic databases of published research, including some abstracts, on five such species of mammal: horses (Equus caballus), possums (Trichosurus vulpecula), stoats, short-tailed weasels or ermines (Mustela erminea), common or least weasels (Mustela nivalis), long-tailed weasels (Mustela frenata).

Database: Releases of Beneficial Organisms in the United States and Territories (ROBO)
Host: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service, Biological Control Documentation Center
Scope: Terrestrial invertebrates in the United States, including biological control agents and pollinators.

Database:  Slow the Spread Gypsy Moth Database
Host: 
Virginia Tech, Department of Entomology
Scope: The Slow the Spread (STS) database is one component of the STS project, which focuses on reducing the rate of spread of gypsy moth spread in the U.S. through the detection and eradication/suppression of isolated colonies to prevent full-scale infestation.  Among the tools featured are data summaries by state, survey maps, and a decision-support system.

General Animals

Database: Animal Diversity Web (ADW)
Host: University of Michigan
Scope: An online database of animal natural history, distribution, classification, and conservation biology.

Database: BioSystematic Database of World Diptera

Scope:
There are some 150,000 species of flies described, for which there are more than 250,000 names. The nomenclator contains some 200,000 name records.

Database: InfoNatura - Birds and Mammals of Latin America
Host: NatureServe
Scope: InfoNatura provides conservation status, taxonomic, and distribution information for more than 5,500 common, rare, and endangered species in 44 countries and territories. InfoNatura is a product of NatureServe in collaboration with Conservation Data Centers in 12 Latin American and Caribbean countries.

Database: Mammal Species of the World
