The BiOnym Virtual Research Environment is to provide its users with BiOnym facilities, i.e. a service developed in the iMarine context to compare a set of scientific names against taxonomic reference lists including recognised ones like Catalogue of Life. The goal of the comparison is to check the “correctness” of the set of scientific names with respect to the target taxa names and possibly having suggestions for their correct spelling.
