Species Plantarum Project
The Species Plantarum Project (SPP)
The Species Plantarum Project is a longer term project aiming to record
essential taxonomic information on vascular plants on a world basis.
It may be likened to a World Flora. It is expected that it will include
accepted names and synonyms with places of publication and types,
short descriptions of all taxa from family to infraspecific rank, keys,
distributions, references to literature comments, etc. It will be linked to the Global Plant Checklist.
details and modus operandi are being discussed by an international steering committee, and further
announcements will be made in due course.
Contact the convener, Dick Brummitt, for further information.
