Biological Databases of South Australia (BDBSA), Australia (1938 - 2016) - marine records

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Jul 5, 2018 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

The Biological Databases of South Australia (BDBSA)is comprised of an integrated collection of corporate databases which meet Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) standards for data quality, integrity and maintenance. BDBSA was initially established to hold the data collected by the Biological Survey of South Australia but has evolved into a central access point for all biological data within South Australia.

The fauna data for this collection has been downloaded from the Atlas of Living Australia(https://collections.ala.org.au/public/show/dr365) as a Darwin Core archive. The taxa have been matched to the World Register of Marine Species (http://www.marinespecies.org) and non-marine taxa excluded. The taxonomy is 'as supplied'.
