Euro+Med PlantBase

Euro+Med Plantbase integrates and critically evaluates information from Flora Europaea, Med-Checklist, the Flora of Macaronesia, and from regional and national floras and checklists from the area as well as additional taxonomic and floristic literature. This is complemented by the European and Mediterranean taxa of several families taken from the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families (WCSP) and of the Leguminosae from the International Legume Database and Information Service (ILDIS). Since 1st of June 2019 it provides access to the total European, Caucasian and Mediterranean flora of native and introduced vascular plants in 226 plant families. Euro+Med PlantBase is continuously updated by an international network of taxonomic and regional editors, advisers and the Euro+Med PlantBase Secretariat.
