Index Nominum Algarum
Bibliographia Phycologica Universalis
The INA is a card file maintained at the Silva Center for Phycological Documentation at the Herbarium of the University of California. It contains nearly 200,000 names of algae (in the broad sense).
The BPU is a card file containing bibliographic references pertaining to algal taxonomy.

| Information pertaining to most of the names is available only in the images of the cards |
In 1998, all the cards — names and references — were stored as TIFF images,
indexes that consist of the complete name and a link to the image file.
Indexes have been made with the assistance of Internet volunteers, the
diatom group at the California Academy of Sciences, Alga-Terra, and GBIF.
Cards that have been added since 1988 have been printed from an electronic database.
We will continue to document the publication of new algal names. You can help
by bringing to our attention new names, or names that we have omitted.
