HerpNET is a collaborative effort by natural history museums to establish a global network of herpetological collections data, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF No. 0132303) and a GBIF DIGIT grant. Sixty-four institutions participated in the HerpNET community (43 in the original NSF grant), with an open ended invitation to institutions who would like to join through VertNet.
The HerpNET2 portal will no longer be available starting 5 January 2015 and will be replaced by the VertNet data portal. Please update your links to the new search page, http://www.vertnet.org/search.
The VertNet portal provides great services and ways to discover data, new data publishers that were not available on HerpNET2, and serves more than 14 million vertebrate records from ~200 collections.
