Description: The Paleobiology Database is a public resource for the scientific community. It
has been organized and operated by a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional,
international group of paleobiological researchers. Its purpose is to provide
global, collection-based occurrence and taxonomic data for marine and
terrestrial animals and plants of any geological age, as well as web-based
software for statistical analysis of the data. The project's wider, long-term
goal is to encourage collaborative efforts to answer large-scale
paleobiological questions by developing a useful database infrastructure and
bringing together large data sets. (cited directly from their website)
