The Phycology.Net

– An Internet Portal from Scientists for Scientists Presenting Information about Diversity of Algae

Von 01/2001 bis

Autor/-en: University of Bayreuth - Mycology Dept. (as one of several cooperating institutions)

The global political consensus on the importance and necessity of biodiversity research for environmental research and management has grown immensely during the last years. In the same period the development of technologies for managing electronic data has been enormous, especially with respect to techniques for data exchange. It is in this favourable context that The Phycology.Net has been established as a non-commercial scientific data platform. The platform is supported by several institutions and further institutions interested are invited to participate.

The Phycology.Net aims to

  • provide online data on the biodiversity of algae, especially their taxonomy, distribution, phylogeny, descriptive characters, collections, literature etc.
  • inform about phycological institutions, journals, databases (link sections) and persons engaged in phycology
  • facilitate interaction between databases and support the development of standards for data exchange
  • reach scientists all over the world and invite them to use the platform and to help improving the quality and quantity of data
  • maintain a discussion forum for phycological subjects and the further development of the platform itself


The vision of the Phycology.Net project is to establish a platform of advanced technology where published data independent of their physical location can be virtually joined and used for the most sophisticated queries.
