The definition of nomenclature differs from dictionary to dictionary but suffice to say a nomenclatural database will deal with the name of an organism and the specimens that bring information regarding the name. There are a number of databases that will be discussed during the session all of which supply the information about the name. These databases have a number of things in common but not all will supply the information necessary for nomenclatural decisions. I will discuss the types of databases available and indicate what type of information can be found within them.
