ECOTOX is a source for locating single chemical toxicity data for aquatic life, terrestrial plants and wildlife. The database was created and is maintained by the US Environmental Protection Agency. ECOTOX integrates three previously independent databases into a single system which includes toxicity data derived predominantly from the peer-reviewed literature, for aquatic life, terrestrial plants, and terrestrial wildlife

EDWIP offers information on fungi, viruses, protozoa, nematodes, and bacteria that are infectious in insects, mites and related arthropods. Data in EDWIP include associations between pathogenic organisms and insect, mite and other arthropod hosts. EDWIP also includes information on where associations have been observed, stages and tissues of hosts infected, and habitats and host ranges of the arthropod hosts. Association and nonassociation data in the database are supported by bibliographic citations. All areas of the database are searchable

International Plant Names Index (IPNI) is a database of the names and associated basic bibliographical details of seed plants, ferns and fern allies. Its goal is to eliminate the need for repeated reference to primary sources for basic bibliographic information about plant names. The data are freely available and are gradually being standardized and checked. International Plant Names Index will be a dynamic resource, depending on direct contributions by all members of the botanical community

SpringerProtocols is a database of reproducible laboratory protocols in the Life and Biomedical Sciences, giving researchers step-by-step protocols for immediate use in their lab. The database is compiled from protocols from Humana’s book series Methods in Molecular Biology, Methods in Molecular Medicine, Methods in Biotechnology, Methods in Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Neuromethods, as well as from Laboratory Handbooks. e.g. The Biomethods Handbook, The Proteomics Handbook, and the Springer Laboratory Manuals

Biology books can be found on the First Floor of the Library. Remember that you must use the Library Catalogue to find the books you want rather than just browsing the shelves.
