Sherborn: Robinson - Sherborn’s Index Animalium integration into ION: access to all

1,053 views

Published on

As a list of zoological taxonomic names used in the scientific literature, the Index to Organism Names (ION) has provided a reference service to researchers for a number of years, based on the content of international publications analysed for inclusion in Zoological Record®. However, this content is limited to names included in Zoological Record (1864-present). This project extends the names database and brings new opportunities through collaboration between the Smithsonian Institute, Thomson Reuters, and the Biodiversity Heritage Library to provide a more complete resource to compliment other taxonomic names services.
