Seychelles fauna monographs

The need to review the biogeography of the Seychelles islands through systematic collecting of all taxonomic groups has been addressed by the Indian Ocean Biodiversity Assessment 2000-2005.  The identifications and taxonomic revisions resulting from this assessment are being compiled into a form that can be easily utilised by future workers in the region, conservationists and researchers in Seychelles and visitors to the islands. This high quality biodiversity information is essential for future sustainable coastal resource management.
