The GCE taxonomic database, originally developed in 2002, has now been streamlined and updated to support automatic synchronization with the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS). The ITIS database provides authoritative taxonomic information on plants, animals, fungi, and microbes of North America and the world. ITIS is a partnership of U.S., Canadian, and Mexican agencies (ITIS-North America), other organizations and taxonomic specialists. ITIS is also a partner of Species 2000 and the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), and provides the taxonomic backbone to the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL).
