This web site provides first hand information about the Entomological Data Information System (EDIS), a joint national biodiversity information initiative which was implemented during the course of three years with support from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as part of the research program BIOLOG (German text). EDIS provides access to relevant information about insects and other arthropods for research and the general public, and was coordinated by the State Museum of Natural History, Stuttgart, Germany.
The funding period for EDIS was April 2000 to December 2003. A number of EDIS projects could be continued within the new funding program GBIF-Germany of the BMBF.
