Historical versions of the COL Annual Checklist

The Catalogue of Life Annual Checklist has been released each year since 2000 (excluding 2001 and 2020).

The following links give access to historical versions of the COL Annual Checklist for each year from 2005 to 2019. MySQL dump files can be downloaded for each version from 2005 to 2019 and Darwin Core Archive ZIP files from 2012 to 2019.

Historical versions of the COL Monthly Checklist

The COL Checklist is updated throughout the year and snapshots are also available for many months from 2017 to the present. Changes in infrastructure have disrupted this series so some intervals are longer than monthly.
