Zoological Record

DETERMINE THE FIRST APPEARANCE OF AN ANIMAL IN PUBLISHED LITERATURE

Zoological Record® is the world's oldest continuing database of animal biology. It is considered the world's leading taxonomic reference, and with coverage back to 1864, has long acted as the world's unofficial register of animal names. The broad scope of coverage ranges from biodiversity and the environment to taxonomy and veterinary sciences.

Backfile Data to 1864: Track more than 140 years of vital data and find the supporting — or refuting — data you need. Modern indexing terms and search functions have been added to older backfiles to further ease your search. More backfiles give you the power to conduct deeper, more comprehensive searches and track trends through time. MORE
