Introduction to WoRCS

The World Register of marine Cave Species (WoRCS) aims to create a comprehensive taxonomic and ecological database of species known from marine and anchialine cave environments worldwide. The assembled data will form a Thematic Species Database (TSD) of WoRMS. The cave-related information will be managed by the WoRCS thematic editors in collaboration with the taxonomic editors of WoRMS, who manage the taxonomic content. The creation of this database will allow for an accurate assessment of the diversity and distribution of such faunas, and will provide information vital for evidence-based conservation.
