New Internet Source on Biodiversity of Georgia, Caucasus

Photo: David Tarkhnishvili

Mr. David Tarkhnishvili and his team are working on an important database of Georgian Biodiversity compiling
lists of species of animals and plants following the hierarchical order reflecting recent taxonomy/phylogenetic system. Currently there are around 870 images in the database. The site also provides information and images of the main natural habitats in Georgia like Arid and semi-arid Mediterranean-like landscapes, Subalpine, alpine landscapes and mountain steppe and others.

The project is situated at the temporary location http://altar.freehostia.com/BDB.php
and is searching for support on finding a hosting with enough webspace to provide all relevant information and images.

Photographic images of individual species of Georgian Fauna and Flora which are not yet included in the Database are kindly welcome.
