Overview

Zoological Record Plus (ZR Plus), produced by Thomson Scientific, and formerly by BIOSIS and the Zoological Society of London, provides extensive coverage of the world's zoological and animal science literature, covering all research from biochemistry to veterinary medicine. The database provides an easily searched collection of references from over 5,000 international serial publications, plus books, meetings, reviews, and other non-serial literature from over 100 countries.

Zoological Record has long been recognized as the "unofficial register" of taxonomic names and systematics, but other topics are also given comprehensive treatment using indexing in both controlled- and natural-language format. An online thesaurus of around 6,000 controlled terms arranged in hierarchies makes it easy to locate appropriate search terms. Scope notes and related term references are also provided.
