Global Names Architecture, Scientific Names Services.
The Global Names Architecture (GNA) is a system of web-services which helps people to register, find, index, check and organize biological scientific names and interconnect on-line information about species.
Global Names Finder
Find scientific names on web pages, PDFs, Microsoft Office documents, images, or in freeform text. Encrypted or image-based PDFs should first pass through an OCR process GNfinder. Found names can be optionally verified against a number of resources.
