World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS)

World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS)

The aim of WoRMS is to provide an authoritative and comprehensive list of names of marine organisms, including information on synonymy. While highest priority goes to valid names, other names in use are included so that this register can serve as a guide to interpret taxonomic literature.

World Register of Introduced Marine Species (WRIMS)

World Register of Introduced Marine Species (WRIMS)

WRIMS records which marine species in the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) have been introduced deliberately or accidentally by human activities to geographic areas outside their native range. It excludes species that colonized new locations naturally (so called 'range extensions'), even if in response to climate change.
