Putting plants online: 4 leading botanical gardens to create first online catalog of all plants
Date:4/23/2012

s involved in this new project are all members of the GPPC.

"An online Flora of all known plants" is the first of the GSPC's targets for the period 2011-2020. Earlier work by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and the Missouri Botanical Garden addressed one of the GSPC's earlier targets for 2010 with the launch of The Plant List, an online portal containing the accepted names and synonyms of all known plant species. The forthcoming Flora will use The Plant List as a building block for something much more detailed, containing not just names but also descriptions, images and distribution information about every plant.

The team tackling the World Flora will build a collaborative partnership for this work worldwide and create a structure and program able to incorporate data from institutions and individuals all over the world. In some cases, existing electronic data sets will be combined and augmented with the results of botanical research published over more than a century around the world. Much historic information will require a thorough review and update, along with a conversion to an electronic medium. As new plants are subsequently collected, named and described, they too will be added to the World Flora.

"We look forward to working with institutions worldwide to produce a sustainable resource to aid conservation globally, regionally and nationally," said Hopper.
