Prokaryotic names

Since decades the Leibniz Institute DSMZ offers the service Prokaryotic Nomenclature up-to-date (PNU), which provides a compilation of all names of Bacteria and Archaea that have been validly published according to the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes. This service tracks all changes in the nomenclature of Prokaryotes by analysing publications in the International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology (IJSEM) and is updated every monthwith each new issue. Data can be accessed using the alphabetical search option or by downloading a complete list comprising all changes in an Excel or PDF format. For the programmatic access, a web service is available, which is free after registration.
