This internet resource aims to introduce the world-wide scientific (and not only scientific) community to the biological diversity of Georgia (and, to certain extent, the Caucasus ecoregion).
The resource includes the lists of the species from different taxonomic groups ever recorded in
The website is a part of a long term project developing the database on the Georgian Biodiversity executed by the Center of Biodiversity Studies of the Institute of Ecology, Ilia State University, Tbilisi, Georgia.
In the year 2005, it was Financed by the Georgian Ministry of Education and Science, and in 2007 the development of the site was additionally supported by Georgian Biodiversity Program sponsored by BP. Currently, the development of the site is supported by Pan-European Species Inventories Project (PESI).
We expect a visitor to understand that the website is a permanently developing internet resource and not to be too severe for lack of information for many species and higher-order taxa, or inconveniencies in the taxonomy which, for the most of the groups of plants, invertebrates, and fish is just copied from the available checklists (the references are given on the respective pages).
