With its research program "Biodiversity and Global Change" (BIOLOG) Germany has embraced the challenge set out by the convention. The objective of the BIOLOG research program is to arrive at a better understanding of the role of biological diversity in ecosystems.
The Orthoptera Species File (OSF) is a taxonomic database of the world's Orthoptera (grasshoppers, locusts, katydids, crickets). It contains full synonymic and taxonomic information for over 23,000 valid species and over 38,000 taxonomic names (all ranks, valid and not valid). There are over 125,000 citations to references. There are also images and sound recordings for many species.
EDIS (Entomological Data Information System) provides access to relevant information about insects and other arthropods for research and the general public, and was coordinated by the State Museum of Natural History, Stuttgart, Germany.
GBIF (Global Biodiversity Information Facility) mission is to make the world's primary data on biodiversity freely and universally available via the Internet.
SysTax (a Database System for Systematics and Taxonomy) is an integrated concept-based database system for storing biodiversity data.
The Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum Alexander Koenig (ZFMK) is one of the major natural history research museums in the Federal Republic of Germany. The significant scientific collections, which concentrate on vertebrates and insects in terrestrial habitats, constitute the museum's "heart".
