Species Cite takes it's name from the idea that taxonomists and others who study biodiversity (such as those shown here) often don't get sufficient recognition for the work they do. An often suggested idea is that if you mention a species name in a publication you should cite the author of that name (or a recent taxonomic revision of that species). But finding these citations can be hard - Species Cite aims to make this easier.
To use, simply put a scientific name (animal, plant, or fungus) into the search box and go. If the name is found you will get a list of names and database identifiers. If you are lucky there will be a link to a PDF or BHL page where you can see the description of the name. If available, information about the authors of that work is also shown.
For more details see Species Cite: linking scientific names to publications and taxonomists. Source code and data set of links between names and publications is on GitHub.
