Species.ie is a database of information on Irish species that includes terrestrial, marine and freshwater organisms. At present, the data for flowering plants and marine organisms, particularly seaweeds and invertebrates, are the most complete. The data are stored in an MySQL 4.1 database and served up via Lasso 8.1 from a dual-processor Mac Xserve with 8 Gb of memory. Network facilities and a most helpful service are provided by the National University of Ireland Computer Services department.
Funding and sponsorship. Species.ie is funded 2006-2008 by the Environmental Protection Agency (Ireland) via the BioChange Programme. Initial data entry was funded by the Heritage Council in 2002-2003.
