Import / Export API | drupal.org

Import / Export API | drupal.org
Very useful for importing/exporting species description. Still in beta mode, but will hopefully work.

The import / export API allows for the definition of data entities within Drupal. The definition system lets data entities be related to each other, and it includes a number of different field types. It also supports a system of import (parsing) and export (rendering) engines, for formats such as XML and CSV. Data entities are able to be exported from, and imported into, a Drupal site, for purposes such as backup, offline editing, data migration, and data transfer between Drupal databases.

This module is currently in beta mode, and testers are welcome. Documents such as specs, schedules, and status updates can be found on the wiki.

This is one of the Google Summer of Code 2006 Drupal projects.
