The goal of Species 2000 is to provide a uniform and validated quality index of names of all known species for use as a practical tool. The index will be used to provide:
  1. an electronic baseline species list for use in inventorying projects worldwide;
  2. the index for an Internet gateway to species databases worldwide;
  3. a reference system for comparison between inventories;
  4. a comprehensive worldwide catalogue for checking the status, classification and naming of species
