Abstract Various kinds of lichen diversity data have been collected in the framework of the BIOTA Southern Africa project. Data of the following domains proved to be relevant for the project: 1) georeferenced collection data; 2) data on diagnostically relevant descriptive characters; 3) lichen community data; 4) digital images of lichens and vegetation sampling areas. Data are gathered and stored in PostgreSQL and MS SQL server database components of the Diversity Workbench suite ( DiversityCollection, DiversityDescriptions, and DiversityTaxonNames. For platform-independent remote data entry, maintenance, and query, modularized Java and .Net-based database rich clients were developed as well as various JSP and PHP web interfaces.
