The goal of the project is via a distributed organisation to assemble a Catalogue of Life for Europe. It will be a validated synonymic taxonomic checklist planned for all species in all groups of organisms. It will start with all of the known species of plants , animals, fungi and micro-organisms that are currently available, including an integrated view of the indigenous and non-indigenous species occurring in Europe. It will also test an electronic (e-Science) gateway enabling users to locate precise technical biodiversity information for species from other data systems in Europe and world-wide.
