All scientific data collected by the Australian Antarctic program (AAp) are eventually described in the Catalogue of Australian Antarctic and Subantarctic Metadata (CAASM). CAASM can be used to search through AAp data descriptions, and it also provides links to access publicly available datasets, which can either be immediately downloaded or obtained from the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC).
The Antarctic Biodiversity database is a database including collection records of plants collected from the Antarctic, subantarctic islands and other areas around the world. You can search for collections and enter, edit or delete collections. An administration page is available for approving entered, edited or deleted collections and for entering, editing or deleting things such as new flora types, new collectors, etc.
Data can always be added to this database by members of the scientific community, thus it is envisaged that this database will continue to grow. Data was collected from the herbarium of Rod Seppelt (Australian Antarctic Division) and was collated for implementation into a database by Dave Connell (AAD) and Andrea Seppelt (AAD) from January -March 1998. See individual collection records for details.
The database can be accessed at the provided URL.
