The Clinical Toxinology Resources website is now available at www.toxinology.com. It is a vast and growing searchable database, including 6000 images, designed to meet the needs of anyone seeking information on venomous and poisonous organisms throughout the world. Coverage is currently most complete for venomous snakes (over 800 species records); important spiders, scorpions and marine organisms are detailed, and new records are being added weekly. In the next few months, nearly 2500 poisonous plant records will be added, along with records of poisonous mushrooms. There is also a list of antivenoms and antivenom producers worldwide. The recently updated CSL antivenom handbook is available in its entirety; further toxinology resource documents will be added in the future.
