Welcome to Seahorses of the World

An electronic global database of taxonomic, biogeographic, and biological information on seahorses. This database will be verified by experts to ensure accuracy, and updated with new information regularly to ensure completeness. It will include type specimen information, photographs, morphological measurements, taxonomic references and explanations of taxonomic decisions. It will also be a databank for similar information for non-type specimens. Functionality will include dynamic mapping of species, identification tools, and links to other global databases e.g. FishBase, Barcode of Life, FishBOL, GenBank, Morphbank.
