Search Species Distribution

To get a list of distributional records, you may select:

  1. a "Region" (e.g., Europe, North America, etc.) OR
  2. Geography (such as Canary Islands, Azores), OR
  3. a country (such as, France, Spain).
The data can be downloaded in a number of formats (e.g., Excel, text file). You can also select the Habitat and restrict the download to a particular class (e.g. Phaeophyceae) from drop-downs that will appear. 473,548 records have been entered, but the task is still very incomplete, particularly for non-marine algae.
