Cryptogamic Russian Information System

CRIS is the online information system, which catalogs biodiversity data of the cryptogamic organisms. Cryptogamic Russian Information System is a convenient tool for storage, visualization, and analysis of biodiversity data of cyanoprokaryotes, fungi, lichens, hepatics, and mosses. This system allows scientists and the general public to access occurrence data of the cryptogams. Also, being the node of CRIS, it is possible to enter new data to the system. We are actively inviting organizations and individuals to share data through CRIS. If you are interested in publishing your data through CRIS, please, contact us, using following e-mail
