The Plant List — A working list for all plant species


To comment upon the data set

Any comments concerning the data will be fed back to the owner of the original data record(s) concerned. Corrections will not appear in this version of The Plant List, rather such corrections, where accepted, will be made in the original data sources. Future updates from the original data sources will be made to the World Flora Online taxonomic backbone, and not to The Plant List.
