Purpose: he project will deliver an electronic Web enabled archive service for marine species and habitat data for the Falkland Islands. The marine biodiversity of the Falkland’s region is poorly understood. Progress is hindered by poor access to historic knowledge; making these data available in a georeferenced searchable database has been strongly recommended for this region. Historic sampling is a key foundation to our knowledge of Southern Hemisphere biodiversity and is important to current and future studies, especially with regard to environmental change.
