BIOSIS Citation Index: 1969-present
Life sciences and bio-medical research covering pre-clinical and experimental research, methods and instrumentation, animal studies, and more.
This interdisciplinary database offers abstracts and citations to a wide range of research in biology, biomedicine, biotechnology, zoology and ecology, and some aspects of agriculture and veterinary science1982 to present.
Zoological Record is the world's leading taxonomic reference and oldest continuing database of animal biology. Use this database to determine the first appearance of an animal name or new species, track taxonomic and nomenclature changes, and keep up on all aspects of animal biology and biodiversity issues.
Focuses on how organisms of all kinds - microbes, plants, and animals - interact with their environments and with other organisms. Included are relevant papers on evolutionary biology, economics, and systems analysis as they relate to ecosystems or the environment.
A bibliographic database containing citations and abstracts of scientific literature on plant science, focusing on all plant scientific aspects, especially on pathology, symbiosis, biochemistry, genetics, biotechnology techniques, and environmental biology.
PubMed, is a service of the National Library of Medicine, which provides access to over 16 million MEDLINE citations back to the mid-1960's and additional life science journals. MEDLINE is the primary database used for getting to the subject content of articles in medicine. There are several ways to get to MEDLINE, including OVID and PubMed. The FSU customized version of PubMed links directly from the article reference to the full article for all electronic journals available at FSU.
