Killi-Data is all about fish that are so important to ichthyologists, biologists, aquarists, ecologists, environmentalists, and behaviorists, because of their unique beauties and characteristics and because Killies are critical tools to malaria control. If you are a new comer to Killifishes, discover their SPECIFICITIES, and their BEAUTIES, their ECOLOGY-BEHAVIOURS.
Killi-Data presents all available top quality information on Killies or oviparous Cyprinodontiformes fishes, including a Data Base, with full ichthyological, ecological and historical coverage of each taxon and, with all aquarium information for maintenance and breeding for each species and, with all details of systematics, morphology, genetics, patterns of each species and, with nearly 3000 color photos and 200 maps for over 1100 valid species (male and female).
Killi-Data is a scientific knowledge base, built on latest evidence only (exceptions : in case of published evidence-based systematic conflicts for a genus, conservatism is selected fully in line with ICZN principles, in case of molecular separation of a species previously as a synonym, revalidation is only accepted if a published new diagnosis is proposed, also fully in line with ICZN principles) ; access to all services is fully free after simple registration with ethical commitments to 'K-D-I'… REGISTRATION.
Killi-Data knowledge base, latest full update : October 7. 2017 [1537 taxa (generic or specific level), 5331 bibliographic references, 1677 Killiflash, 2986 fish photos, 8615 collecting localities, 200 maps, and 342 linked alerts].
