IP055: Improvements to the Alien Species Database (with Australia)

Summary:

The Australian Antarctic Data Centre is considering ways to modify the Biodiversity Database to improve the management of non-native species records. A new facility to associate images with species records could assist with species identification, and an online data entry form could provide a consistent format for entering and distributing new records. Feedback from Members on these enhancements would be welcome.
