EMBL Reptiles Database
Entry ID: EMBL_Reptiles

Summary
Abstract: The EMBL Reptile Database is intended to provide information on
the classification of all living reptiles by listing all species
and their pertinent higher taxa. The database therefore covers
all living snakes, lizards, amphisbaenians and crocodiles. It is
supposed to be a source of taxonomic data, thus providing
primarily (scientific) names, synonyms, distributions and
related data. However, a limited number of species accounts
contain links to external sources including pictures.

About a quarter to a third of the data has been provided
directly by contributors in either electronic or paper form
(i.e. reprints etc.). Some data come from online sources as
listed on the family pages or in the species entries. Recently
we have been focusing increasingly on current journals and other
publications to keep the database up to date.
