Dear Taxacomers,

This is to advise that after a layoff of around 8+ years, I have decided to revamp my "Internet Resources in Taxonomy" page - with the word "Biodiversity" substituted for "Taxonomy" as a tribute to the times - that I first posted in 1998 (although have not promoted for a while!), since numerous new resources have come online since that time plus most of the old ones have suffered "link rot". You can view the in-progress new, improved version at http://www.cmar.csiro.au/datacentre/taxonomy/mainlist.htm (the old URL http://www.marine.csiro.au/datacentre/taxonomy/mainlist.htm still works too, but may be deprecated at some future point). I would be very happy to take suggestions either on- or off-list as to useful sites that should be included (you will see where I have got to) and/or any other general comments.

Please note, the references to IRMNG will get you to my current genus lists and I know the higher taxonomy is "wobbly" for many of these, for which I apologise in advance to the usual suspects (you know who you are!). I intend to improve the fungal section (at least) to be aligned with most recent sources at some point in the near future.

Regards to all,
