Abstract

GRUNDLINGH, M.L. et al. AfrOBIS: A marine biogeographic information system for sub-Saharan Africa. S. Afr. j. sci. [online]. 2007, vol.103, n.3-4, pp.91-93. ISSN 1996-7489.

AfrOBIS is one of 11 global nodes of the Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS), a freely accessible network of databases collating marine data in support of the Census of Marine Life. Versatile graphic products, provided by OBIS, can be used to display the data. To date, AfrOBIS has loaded about 3.2 million records of more than 23 000 species located mainly in the seas around southern Africa. This forms part of the 13.2 million records of more than 80 000 species currently stored in OBIS. Scouting for South African data has been successful, whereas locating records in other African countries has been much less so.
