Welcome to the NIWA Taxonomic Information System

The NIWA Taxonomic Information System comprises:

  • The Taxonomic Reference System (TRS)
  • The Taxonomic Attribute Database (TAD)
  • The Publishing & Reporting Service (PRS)
  • Links to the New Zealand Organisms Register (NZOR)

Together these systems maintain a full list of taxonomic names used by NIWA, allow the management of information associated with each name and the generation of reports and publications based on that information.

To use the Attribute Editor you need to be a registered NIWA user and subscribed to the TAD service.
