Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts (ASFA) [via ProQuest]
Essential literature resource for marine, freshwater and brackish water environments and organisms. Comprehensive international scope with input centers from research centers in each country managed by FAO.
bioRxiv (pronounced "bio-archive") is a free online archive and distribution service for unpublished preprints in the life sciences. It is operated by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, a not-for-profit research and educational institution. By posting preprints on bioRxiv, authors are able to make their findings immediately available to the scientific community and receive feedback on draft manuscripts before they are submitted to journals.

BIOSIS Previews Classic [via Clarivate]
BIOSIS Previews is a database designed by biologists for researching the biological sciences literature.
Census of Marine Life Portal
The Census of Marine Life (CoML) is a research program that seeks to assess the diversity, distribution and abundance of ocean life and to explain how it changes over time. The portal provides access to a global network of researchers in more than 45 nations engaged in this ten-year marine life initiative. Includes three major projects: Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS), the History of Marine Animal Populations project (HMAP), and the Future of Marine Animal Populations project (FMAP). Seven studies have been initiated to collect data for these projects: Biogeography of Deep-Water Chemosynthetic Ecosystems (ChEss); Census of Diversity of Abyssal Marine Life (CeDAMaR); Gulf of Maine Program (GoM); Mid-Atlantic Ridge Ecosystems Project (MAR-ECO); Natural Geography in Shore Areas (NaGISA); Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking Program (POST); and Tagging of Pacific Pelagics (TOPP).
Reefbase is a valuable resource for information on coral reefs. It includes: full-text to coral reef-related publications, including the International Coral Reef Symposium Proceedings; coral reef maps and GIS; and a photo gallery. ReefBase is a project by WorldFish, an international, non-profit research organization dedicated to reduce poverty and hunger by improving fisheries and aquaculture. WorldFish is a member of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), a strategic alliance of members, partners and international agricultural centers that mobilizes science to benefit the poor.
Zoological Record [via Clarivate]
World's oldest continuing database of animal biology - designed to include all records of new species information and naming. Most comprehensive database for wildlife and extensive coverage of field studies. From aardvarks to bees to sloths to wasps to zebras, Zoo Record includes them all.

AquaDocs [formerly Aquatic Commons]
As of 2021: "AquaDocs is the joint open access repository of the UNESCO/IOC InternationaI Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) and the International Association of Aquatic and Marine Science Libraries and Information Centers (IAMSLIC) with support from the FAO Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts. It is a thematic repository covering the natural marine, coastal, estuarine /brackish and fresh water environments and includes all aspects of the science, technology, management and conservation of these environments, their organisms and resources, and the economic, sociological and legal aspects." This is a merger of Aquatic Commons and OceanDocs.
