Describes databases available online related to invasive animal species. See Resource Library - Databases for general resources, other species, expertise, and geographic based information.
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: PestSmart Connect
Host: Invasive Animals Cooperative
Research Centre (Australia)
Scope: Provides a toolkit of information on best practice pest animals management in Australia. It retains the searchable database of the old site (formerly www.feral.org.au) with over 8000 records including published and unpublished research, technical reports, management practices, threat abatement plans and legislation.
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.

Database: Animal Diversity Web (ADW)
Host: University of Michigan
Scope: An online database of animal natural history, distribution, classification, and conservation biology.
Database: Systema Dipterorum - The BioSystematic Database of World Diptera
Host: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agriculture Research Service, Systematic Entomology Laboratory (SEL)
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
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
Host: Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
Scope: Contains taxonomic information on 4,629 mammal species.
