The following are checklists that cover Antarctic-wide purposes. For region specific lists, see the Bio-Regions list.
|Checklist||Description||Purpose / Comments||Links to additional data|
|Alien species||Species that have been introduced to the Antarctic and/or sub-Antarctic ecosystem as a result of human activity (including species that arrived by natural means but are alien to that biogeographical zone)||Data from Frenot, Y., Chown, S.L., Whinam, J., Selkirk, P., Convey, P., Skotnicki, M. & Bergstrom, D. (2005) Biological invasions in the Antarctic: extent, impacts and implications. Biological Reviews 80 pp. 45-72 see http://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/bib/display_bib.cfm?bib_id=41321||View 199 species|
|Antarctic Birds||The definite list of Antarctic birds with status on breeding, vagrant or visitor to the region.||This list from the SCAR Expert Group on Birds, May 2005. See http://www.birds.scar.org/. It does not include sub-Antarctic species unless they are visitors or vagrants.||View 83 species|
|Antarctic Marine Protists||Protists are microscopic algae and protozoa, formerly thought of as single-celled plants and animals. Planktonic protists constitute the base of marine food webs and play a key role in the exchange of carbon dioxode between the atmosphere and the ocean. This list is of protsists that live in the surface waters and sea-ice south of the Antarctic Polar Front.||Species list derived from the book Antarctic Marine Prostists (2005) edited by Fiona J. Scott and Harvey J. Marchant. (ISBN 0 642 56835 9)||View 563 species|
