Check List

Official partner

Check List: the journal of biodiversity data is a peer-reviewed online journal, devoted to publishing biodiversity data related to species' geographic distribution. Thus, our primary mission is to fill the so-called Wallacean shortfall (Lomolino 2004) and to improve our knowledge of how life is distributed on the planet in order to better preserve it. The journal was created from the need to publish basic data on species distribution of any taxon in a timely and open manner, which are often neglected by traditional journals.
