Welcome to the TRIN Wiki

The Taxonomy Research & Information Network (TRIN) aims to enhance and accelerate taxonomic research and delivery of information on Australia's biodiversity, with broad goals to:
  • reinvigorate taxonomy in Australia
  • evaluate and road test new methodologies for research and delivery of taxonomic information for a wide range of end users
  • create and maintain a modern collaborative national electronic framework for taxonomic knowledge exchange.

Pages are created and moderated by biodiversity communities for
  • pre-publication research for the description of new species (& other taxa)
  • the collaborative documentation of all aspects of described species (& other taxa)

They are organised around specific projects which vary in their maturity and target audience. Some contain information put together for public consumption. Others are moderated or closed spaces, in which taxonomic projects collaborate on their own business prior to formal publication.
