The identification of bird remains, in particular of pieces of feather, is of great importance to aviation. Bird collisions are hazardous, costing millions of dollars in damage worldwide. Correct identification of the remains improves the accuracy of bird strike statistics and thus contributes to flight safety. In fields like archeology and criminology, in studies of food consumption and in the enforcement of nature protection laws, identification of bird remains is also essential. This CD-ROM holds a multimedia database with detailed information on microscopic feather structures of 200 bird species from Europe and the Middle East. Its image library contains a unique reference collection of well over 1800 images of feathers and habitus pictures. An innovative computer-guided identification system assists the user in recognizing the identification characters and in quickly identifying the taxa. The interactive geographic information system supports the use of location in selecting potential hit-species. BRIS was developed by ETI, the University of Amsterdam, and the Tel Aviv University with support from the Royal Netherlands Air Force, the Israel Air Force and the SPNI. In combination with, and in addition to this CD-ROM, it is also possible to contract the European Centre for the Identification of Bird Remains (ECIBR) or the Laboratory for Feather Remains Identification for extended (confidential) identification services.

Blackflies are a family of homogenous small dipteran flies, usually quite darkly colored, hence the vernacular family name. Females of many species are vicious bloodsuckers that attack birds or mammals, and some species are vectors transmitting pathogen organisms.

Presently 2060 recent blackfly species are recognized worldwide. Many additional species are not known well enough to decide whether or not they are valid species. This uncertainty in some extent applies also to the North European blackfly fauna. Our knowledge is that we have at least 71 valid blackfly species in Northern Europe. Apparently, we still must expect discovery of new synonymy and name changes in Northern European species due to misunderstanding and wrong usage of names.

The presentation on this CD-ROM is a revision of the taxonomic and nomenclature status of the North European blackfly fauna. Most of the study is based on material from Fennoscandia and adjacent areas, including Denmark.

Taxonomic notes and references on distribution are given for each separate species. Common names are introduced to many of the blackfly species. These are not much cited in literature but we include them here as we feel they are useful and interesting. In addition we include vernacular names (relating to Norwegian geographical places) of two species (Metacnephia tredecimata and Simulium truncatum), which are in local use for many years.

The Chironomidae, a cosmopolitan family of small nematocerous flies, is represented by some 1,300 described valid species in the West Palaearctic Region. Many species are widely distributed and the fast majority have aquatic juvenile stages which, on average, comprise one third of the invertebrate species in freshwater habitats. This usual abundance, and the fact that a number of species are pollution-tolerant, make chironomids ideal indicator species in monitoring the quality of surface waters. The CD-ROM offers a key to the pupal exuviae belonging to nearly 1,000 species and forms. All West Palaearctic species are included with complete and up-to-date synonymy and distribution data. Key and species descriptions are illustrated by more than 1,500 drawings and the text is hyperlinked to a glossary of scientific terms.

The Chironomidae form a cosmopolitan family of small nematocerous flies represented by some 1,300 species in the West Palaearctic Region. Chironomid larvae are widely distributed and the fast majority have aquatic juvenile stages which, on average, comprise one third of the invertebrate species in freshwater habitats. This usual abundance, and the fact that a number of species are pollution-tolerant, make chironomids ideal indicator species in monitoring the quality of surface waters. This CD-ROM offers an identification key to 279 species in their final larval stage and 203 higher taxa of the lowlands of northwestern Europe. Each taxon has a short description. To distinguish a taxon from a related one, differential characteristics are given. For a number of species and higher taxa the biotopes are illustrated with photographs. The key and descriptions are illustrated with more than 850 drawings and the text is hyperlinked to a glossary of scientific terms.

Processes related to DNA and proteins are elegant and often complicated. The challenge of telling the story of DNA and proteins is to keep it simple but at the same time scientifically accurate. With this in mind, the information in this CD-ROM is presented in a continuous, basic level story-line, while the advanced level details are optional. The program is intended for use in both secondary schools (age 16 and above) and first or second year university. The advanced level information helps to understand complex processes and stimulates curiosity in secondary school students. For undergraduates, the basic level helps to eliminate deficiencies in understanding and to strengthen essential knowledge. A simple navigation system allows switching between the levels and topics without the risk of "losing track". Numerous illustrations and animations support the textual information. An index containing over 200 entries provides direct access to the many topics covered in the sections. A diagnostic test with feedback helps students to grasp fundamental concepts. The user-friendly nature of the program makes it ideal for group teaching or self-study. It can be used as a stand-alone resource or to complement text books.

DNA technologies have a steadily increasing impact on many aspects of our live. Applications in the medical field are most prominent: prenatal and neonatal screening, diagnostics of hereditary disorders, patient specific treatment of diseases and hopefully in the near future the possibility to cure diseases caused by non-functional genes or cells. Large scale production of life saving proteins is an equally important benefit of genetic engineering. Crops can be protected against pets by predator specific treatments. And last but not least DNA analyses have proved to be a valuable tool in forensic investigations. This module explains the essentials of DNA techniques and their applications. Knowledge is a must for understanding the power of molecular biology, and helps forming a well-funded opinion on developments that are changing our society. The techniques and examples addressed in the module are supported by report and assignment forms. It is highly recommended that students use them while working on the -virtual- experiments. Reports help them to structure essential steps and note results of the experiments. Assignments are meant to reflect on the significance of the experiments and their applications.

True fruit flies (Tephritidae) are serious pests of fruit and cucurbit vegetables, and many are of international plant quarantine importance as their presence often constitutes a trade barrier. In Malesia, the major pests are all species of the tribe Dacini, the subject of this CD-ROM. The key permits the separation of 414 species, including 29 pest species, and also updates a previously published system by the same authors that covered a slightly wider area (published by CAB INTERNATIONAL). All of the species accounts have been revised to incorporate new host data resulting from recent major surveys in the region, and 50 additional species of Bactrocera and Dacus were added. All species are illustrated by line drawings depicting their habitus and color patterning.

Malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases are major human mortality and morbidity factors in many tropical regions, including Malesia. Correct identification of mosquito vectors is the first step towards successful control of the vectors, and consequently the diseases. Interactive keys (adult female and larval) are provided to separate the 20 genera of Culicidae found in Malesia . New keys are provided to species of most genera that include vector species, namely Aedes, Anopheles , Coquillettidia , Culex and Mansonia ; diagnostic notes are provided for Armigeres . Each species key includes enough representative non-vector species to permit separation of vector from non-vector species. Either line drawings or high-definition photographs illustrate all species. The CD-ROM also includes an introduction, and there are sections on how to collect and preserve mosquitoes, morphology, checklists, a list of mosquito-borne diseases, and a bibliography. There are two help files, one for the software (CABIKEY) and the other a morphological glossary.

A combination of videos of living plants and three dimensional animations. Combining images of living plant stages with computer simulations allows you to easily bridge the gap between the familiar plant and the micro-environment contained within it. Place yourself on the surface of a fern leaf or on a prothallus! Three dimensional animations take you in and around reproductive structures such as the sorus, sporangium, antheridium and archegonium. You see dynamic events such as spore formation, spore release, prothallus formation, sperm release, fertilisation and embryo growth. There are three levels of increasing complexity: 1. Simple - no terminology or breaks, 8m:46s; 2. Intermediate - simple terminology and divided into sections with summaries, 16m:4s; 3. Advanced - contains scientific terminology, divided into sections, 13m:21s.

This CD-ROM covers the early developmental stages of fish from three geographic areas: southern India, Thailand and the Philippines. Altogether, 77 selected fish species of great economic value have been determined. Only the early stages occurring frequently in mangrove waters are chosen for description. Where many stages of a species are found in mangroves, a figure to represent a typical stage is given while the description covers the characteristic features of many stages. This should suffice for the identification of early developmental stages of mangrove fish. To enable intercomparison, all species are treated in the same way: after a brief illustrated description of the early stages of individual species, the salient biological, ecological, capture fisheries and aquaculture-related information of the species as a whole and not of the early stages alone, are given, to indicate the strategic, academic and applied importance of individual elements.

The Leguminosae are one of the most important plant families: many species are used as food, green manure or timber. This CD-ROM holds a detailed information system covering all 247 species of the Caesalpiniodeae, native and cultivated, in the Flora Malesiana region. Based on Flora Malesiana Vol. 12.2 by Ding Hou, K.Larsen and S.S.Larsen, this work is much extended with over 1000 illustrations, full descriptions, information on uses, habitat, ecology, and distribution for each taxon (including the Mimosoideae genera). Identification is facilitated by two types of computer assisted keys: a dichotomous key to all caesalpinioid species (and the mimosoid genera) and several multi-access keys: one to the genera and species of the Caesalpinioideae, and five to the species in each of the larger groups. An innovative diagnostic system allows complex searches on distribution, uses and habitat. An interactive geographic information system presents distribution data and supports geographic comparisons. A literature database with ca. 200 references and a hyperlinked illustrated glossary to more than 750 botanical terms are part of the system. This CD-ROM is a a taxonomic reference work that belongs in every scientific library on plants in SE Asia.

About ETI's CD-ROMs and other releases

ETI produces, together with its partners, taxonomic 'e-monographs' on CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, as well as video DVDs and PhotoCDs to document the world's biodiversity resources and to provide scientists, students, eco-managers and other users with quality up-to-date taxonomic and biodiversity information systems. These efforts are part of our contribution to the Species Bank Programme of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF).


 

The World Biodiversity Database CD-ROM Series

These CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs are based on ETI's Linnaeus II content management software (or comparable ETI-supported software) and contain multimedia taxonomic databases, computer-assisted identification keys and interactive geographic information systems. They either encompass a taxon (regionally or worldwide), or contain a biodiversity information system covering species diversity in a specified geographic region. These titles provide detailed and complete information systems that are to be used as state of the art taxonomic references works for bio-monitoring purposes, biodiversity documentation, etc. The information on some of these CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs is derived from ETI's Partner Networks or from collaborative programmes with partner institutions. Linnaeus II-based information systems can also be published online and made accessible through ETI's World Biodiversity Database.
