Abstract
    TAXEX is a series of taxonomic expert systems, which are developed to help scientists to professionally identify living organisms. They provide scientists with different taxonomic information, including taxon descriptions and diagnosis, geographic distributions, scientific nomenclature, identification keys and illustrations; it creates a tool for interactive identification of living organisms and trains new taxonomists. The main goal of TAXEX is to give public access to taxonomic and expert knowledge of the Black and Azov Sea biota. These systems can be used in disciplinary sciences like biological oceanography, biophysics, landscape ecology, bioecology, etc., in which specialists from different scientific fields are needed. Using taxonomic expert systems instead of high-paid taxonomists will reduce costs of scientific research and will allow many scientists without a specific biological education to work independently.
