(3) Wildlife Database (1960 to present) Produced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Reference Service, this database contains over 21,000+ records, 90% of which are drawn from unpublished research reports, field studies, and surveys from U. S. state agencies.
(4) BIODOC (1970 to 1999) From the National University of Costa Rica, BIODOC has 9,000 records and emphasizes Central and South American fauna.
