Abstract: The Australian Biological Resources Study (ABRS) aims to provide, through strategic partnerships, the underlying taxonomic knowledge necessary for the conservation and sustainable use of Australia’s biodiversity. Through its many online databases and keys, ABRS delivers taxonomic and biological information on species known to occur in Australia. The Australian Faunal Directory (AFD) provides taxonomic and biological information on Australia’s animal species. About 50% of the species described in Australia are recorded in the AFD. The AFD contributes nearly 1,000 species of snails and slugs (Mollusca: Pulmonata) to the Catalogue of Life.
