|  The Six Kingdom Inventory System is currently available on         |

|  A totally new biodiversity information management system, SKIS     |
|  consists of a fully functional program, data files, documentation, |
|  and examples.                                                      |
|                                                                     |
|  Free to private individuals.                                       |
|  Concessions will be given to Conservation and Education groups.    |
|  Businesses will require a negotiated licence.                      |
|                                                                     |
|  SKIS builds checklists using the Biological Classification as a    |
|  hierarchical Index and these are represented with a short and      |
|  meaningful code.  The aim is to allow any assemblage of species to |
|  be checklisted such that all taxa fall into one sequence, so all   |
|  checklists can be compatible.  This aim is met using the current   |
|  release (SKI_INput v 5.2) when compatible NAMes-files are used     |
|  to create the SKI-checklists.                                      |
|                                                                     |
