Global Thematic Databases ---- Plantae

The Plant List is a working list of all known plant species. It aims to be comprehensive for species of Vascular plant (flowering plants, conifers, ferns and their allies) and of Bryophytes (mosses and liverworts). Collaboration between the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and Missouri Botanical Garden enabled the creation of The Plant List by combining multiple checklist data sets held by these institutions and other collaborators.

The database is compiled from many contributed datasets and is continually being edited and updated and should be considered a working checklist.


International Legume Database & Information Service World Database of Legumes The ILDIS is an international project which aims to document and catalogue the world's legume species diversity in a readily accessible form.

Now, it currently contains records for over 19,000 taxa (species, subspecies and varieties).
