The AVIS-IBIS is a web-based system, which is modular and searchable, allowing users to source information on status, distribution and ecology of different species in the region. The system is an “open beta version” enabling it to get feedback from general public, add features and build upon the existing database. The interactive portal uses open-source software and helps the users to contribute data to the portal. All the information on the portal will be peer-reviewed from respective experts.
AVIS-IBIS Portal's taxonomic treatment (designation and sequence of orders, families, and species) and nomenclature (common and scientific names) are based on Clements's 6th edition but include more recent revisions. The family accounts at the beginning of each heading reflects this taxonomy, as do the species counts found in each family account. We had also included many splits and lumps of species. For easy access we have divided all the taxa into Passerines and Non-passerines groups.
The AVIS-IBIS Portal has a very simple user interface, which will help in widening the ambit of the data system by facilitating varied interactions and data sharing.
