Version 1.5 [r9e4c880]
This page offers an interface on the application that exports data from the Species 2000 & ITIS Catalogue of Life, 26th February 2018 edition in the Darwin Core Archive format. The resulting archives can be imported into custom MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite and MS SQL Server databases using import scripts included in each archive. These scripts can also be downloaded separately.
The export can be narrowed down to a specific taxon by selecting it from the menus. E.g. if you want to limit your export to a specific order, you can select that order from the menu by typing its name or by clicking the Show all button. By default, the complete data is exported but you can further limit the export by selecting a different option. Hover over the buttons to see exactly what is exported for each option.
