Biology: Zoological Record

Biology information

Zoological Record

Zoological Record®

Zoological Record is the world's oldest continuing database of animal biology. It is a leading taxonomic reference, and with coverage back to 1864, has long acted as an unofficial register of animal names. The broad scope of coverage ranges from biodiversity and the environment to taxonomy and veterinary sciences.Researchers may use Zoological Record to determine the first appearance of an animal name or new species, track taxonomic and nomenclatural changes, and keep up on aspects of animal biology and biodiversity issues.

Zoological Record includes records not found in Biological Abstracts and should be consulted for comprehensive searches of the zoological literature. Geographic searching is particularly comprehensive.

[Note: The ISU Library's electronic subscription includes only 2010 to the present. However, this still includes over 100,000 records. Please search the Library Catalog for print holdings.]
