SeSam is an outstanding international collection of recent and fossil animals and plants from all over the world. It also holds an important specialized library. The really substantial data of this collection constitute the basis of every taxonomic-systematical, ecological, biogeographical or biostratigraphical fundamental research as well as every practical environmental research. Because of its historical referencings this collection is also a precious cultural treasure that generates the often expensive heavy mission of its conservation.
Currently we are developing a new database system, called AQUiLA. As a first step we present a new search portal, which allows for full text searches throughout the database. For reasons of data-protection only part of the database is freely accessible. If you need more comprehensive information, please contact the personnel responsible for the respective collection.
The AQUiLA search portal is currently under active development. This is true for the functionality as well as for the content of the database. In the current version you can do a full text search by entering a term in the input field. The results of the search can be restricted and made more precise by selecting topics and terms in the left column of the window. https://search.senckenberg.de/aquila-public-search/search?iframe=0&searchTerm=&searchMode=exact&conversationContext=4 (28.3.2017)
