Datenbanken zu Pflanzennamen

  • The Plant List, a working list of all known plant species "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.".

  • International Plant Names Index (IPNI) "is a database of the names and associated basic bibliographical details of all seed plants [and pteridophytes].. The data in the IPNI comes from three sources: the Index Kewensis (IK), the Gray Card Index (GCI) and the Australian Plant Names Index (APNI).... The data are freely available and are gradually being standardized and checked. ... IPNI is the product of a collaboration between The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, The Harvard University Herbaria, and the Australian National Herbarium ".

  • Index nominum genericorum (ING) "The Index Nominum Genericorum (ING), a collaborative project of the International Association for Plant Taxonomy (IAPT) and the Smithsonian Institution, was initiated in 1954 as a compilation of generic names published for all organisms covered by the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature." "It is no longer possible to keep ING completely up to date with newly published names in all groups, so the ING search form also has a 'distributed search' that looks for generic names of plants in other online resources. The results are presented on a single screen along with the ING entry."

  • Indices Nominum Supragenericorum Plantarum Vascularium. Alphabetical listing by genera [and families] of validly published suprageneric names, by James L. Reveal.

  • Vascular Plant Families and Genera, compiled by R.K.Brummitt and published by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in 1992.

  • Names in Current Use for Extant Plant Genera, Electronic version (NCU-3-e) , edited by W. Greuter, B. Zimmer & W. Berendsohn (BGBM Berlin-Dahlem). – "The database here presented is an electronic version generated from wordprocessor files used for the camera-ready copy of the printed publication of NCU-3. Numerous annotations and corrections have already been made, so that in many parts it represents an update of the printed version. However, many records may still contain errors introduced in the conversion process."

  • Index of Mosses "MOST is the moss data base, MOSs TROPICOS, at the Missouri Botanical Garden. MOST currently contains information on over 90,000 bryophyte names, a bibliography of 16,000 titles, and almost 37,000 specimen records."

  • MycoBank "is an on-line database aimed as a service to the mycological and scientific society by documenting mycological nomenclatural novelties (new names and combinations) and associated data, for example descriptions and illustrations."  – Index Fungorum "is a community resource currently co-ordinated and supported by the following partnership: CABI Bioscience, CBS and Landcare Research". Database of all names of fungi (including lichenized fungi) published, bibliographic data are partly rather limited, see " Help with searching".

  • Index Nominum Algarum (INA) –  "The INA is a card file maintained by Paul Silva at the Herbarium of the University of California. It contains nearly 200,000 names of algae (in the broad sense), ... In 1998, all the cards–names and references– were stored as TIFF images, which are available through indexes that are being made gradually, with the help of users. Indexes to many genera have been completed. ... Changes affecting names on these cards are to be found in a separate database along with all post-1988 entries."

  • Provisional Global Plant Checklist "Managed by the International Organization for Plant Information (IOPI), the Global Plant Checklist (GPC) is a cooperative international project designed to help humanity manage the earth's biodiversity efficiently and sustainably. This prototype for IOPI's Global Plant Checklist Project demonstrates how the Checklist works, and serves as an aid for developing data entry and botanical editing procedures. Up to now, records from 6 major floristic datasets have been imported, as well as 2 specialized family datasets. With a total of 240 849 source records, the GPC now covers 201 397 different plant names."

  • Flowering Plant Gateway (Texas A&M University Bioinformatics Working Group) "The Flowering Plant Gateway is being developed to explore procedures that 'attach' the growing mass of internet data developing for flowering plant families to a stable taxonomic structures (the Cronquist and Thorne Classification Systems). The resulting systematic data matrix can be negotiated by anyone seeking information on a given flowering plant family, either with regard to its placement in the Thorne/Cronquist systems or, via selection of a high-lighted family name, web links to other sources."

  • World Checklist and Bibliography Series-database"comprises an inventory of taxonomically validated seed plant names and associated bibliographic details, together with an annotated selection of relevant literature for individual genera as well as the family as a whole. All accepted taxa are included together with their distribution and life-forms; comments on nomenclatural or taxonomic status or other features are sometimes also furnished. In addition, most synonyms are also included. Names and other data are held in a database from which are derived both electronic and print products." 

  • TROPICOS "TROPICOS® was originally created for internal research but has since been made available to the world’s scientific community. All of the nomenclatural, bibliographic, and specimen data accumulated in MBG’s electronic databases during the past 25 years are publicly available here. This system has over 1.2 million scientific names and 3.9 million specimen records."

  • World Economic Plants – Die "Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN)"-Datenbank des National Plant Germplasm System of the Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, enthält die wissenschaftlichen und Trivialnamen, Synonyme, Verbreitungs- und Literaturangaben sowie Angaben zur Nutzung bzw. Bedeutung ökonomisch wichtiger Pflanzen (Nutzpflanzen & Unkräuter).

  • Euro+Med Plantbase – A critical synonymic inventory with territory-by-territory distribution data and maps, with checked and standardised nomenclature citations for entire Europe, the circum-Mediterranean countries, the Macaronesian Islands (except Cabo Verde) and, optionally, the Caucasus. In progress; planned to include all vascular plants, currently comprising the entire family Compositae (including all apomicts).

  • Med-ChecklistA critical inventory of vascular plants of the circum-Mediterranean countries – "Med-Checklist is a synonymic catalogue of vascular plant taxa found growing in the wild in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. It has been designed as a synthetic guide to 'translate' the botanical nomenclature used in any of them into what is believed to be the correct nomenclature under current taxonomic standards. It also gives territory-by-territory distributions for all listed taxa up to the aggregate level."

  • The African Flowering Plant Database – Datenbank zu den Namen und Synonymen der c. 50 000 Gefäßpflanzenarten des afrikanischen Kontinents, mit Literaturangaben und Verbreitungsdaten. Ein Kooperationsprojekt des Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques de la Ville de Genève (CJB) und des South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI).

  • The Linnaean Plant Name Typification Project: The Linnaean database  (Natural History Museum London) –  "This page links to a searchable database containing typification details for all Linnaean plant names. For each binomial, we provide the place of publication, stated provenance, the type specimen (or illustration) and a reference to where the type choice was published, and an indication of the current name of the taxon within which Linnaeus' original binomial now falls (binomial and family names)".
