Abstract:
Species 2000 has the objective of enumerating all known species of plants, animals, fungi and microbes on Earth as the baseline dataset for studies of global biodiversity. It will also provide a simple access point enabling users to link from here to other data systems for all groups of organisms, using direct species-links. Users worldwide will be able to verify the scientific name, status and classification of any known species through species checklist data drawn from an array of participating databases. The purpose of Species 2000 is to provide a uniform and validated quality index of names of all known species for use as a practical tool. The index will be used to provide an electronic baseline species list for use in inventorying projects worldwide; the index for an Internet gateway to species databases worldwide; a reference system for comparison between inventories; a comprehensive worldwide catalogue for checking the status, classification and naming of species. The thrust of the Species 2000 plan is to create an array of participant global species databases covering each of the major groups of organisms. Implementation of the Species 2000 programme involves forming a "federation" of existing taxonomic databases: Species 2000; stimulating the establishment of global species databases for all groups of organisms, by accelerating the completion of existing databases and developing new ones; working to an ultimate goal of providing a computer-based index of all known species; developing procedures to maintain the databases and to update the taxonomy; cooperating with international nomenclatural authorities in stabilizing nomenclature. Information was taken from the Species 2000 web site: http://www.species2000.org/aboutsp2000.html; The Species 2000 Programme was established by the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS), in cooperation with the Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) and the International Union of Microbiological Societies (IUMS) in September 1994. It was subsequently endorsed by the UNEP Biodiversity Work Programme 1996-1997, and associated with the Clearing House Mechanism of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The thrust of the Species 2000 plan is to create an array of participant global species databases covering each of the major groups of organisms. Each such database will cover all known species in the group, using a consistent taxonomic system. The headquarters of the present databases are widely distributed throughout the world, and this trend will continue as new databases are added. The existing global species databases may presently account for some 40% of the total known species, so substantial investment in new databases will be needed for full coverage of all taxa to be achieved. Some of the taxonomic groups being addressed by the organisations starting the Species 2000 programme are as follows: Viruses, Bacteria, Corals, Molluscs, Crustacea, Diptera, Ichneumon Wasps, Moths & Butterflies, Curculionid Beetles, Fishes, Birds, Mammals, Fungi, Cacti, Palms, Legumes, Umbellifers and Fossil Plants.
