Atlas of Living Australia

Australian Ringneck (Barnardius zonarius) is one of many living creatures inhabiting place of my interest = Jandakot Airport in Perth, WA. I know it thanks to ALA.

While being recently in Sydney I had a chance to take part in a lecture promoting this internet based platform integrating all information on Australian biodiversity. If you are an ecologist it might be more addictive than facebook.

The Atlas of Living Australia is one of the most comprehensive database of biodiversity information. It is a very friendly tool for theĀ  researchers, with rich GIS capabilities. To view go to: www.ala.org.au
