Title: Euro+Med Plantbase
Creator: Euro+Med Project
Abstract: Euro+Med PlantBase ("the information resource for euro-mediterranean plant diversity") provides an on-line database and information system for the vascular plants of Europe and the Mediterranean region, against an up-to-date and critically evaluated consensus taxonomic core of the species concerned. After several years of planning, the project is now firmly underway. The first stage of the project (referred to as Phase One) has been financed for three years by the European Union under Framework V. This database is constantly expanded and improved. Already in 2009, EuroMed provides three of the largest families: Compositae (Asteraceae, sunflower family) Poaceae (Gramineae, grass family) Rosaceae (rose family); and the following smaller families: Alismataceae, Aponogetonaceae, Basellaceae, Butomaceae, Cabombaceae, Chenopodiaceae (only tribus Salicornieae), Corylaceae, Elatinaceae, Geraniaceae, Haloragaceae, Hippuridacae, Hydrocharitaceae Juncaginaceae Lemnaceae Lilaeaceae Myricaceae Najadaceae, Nelumbonaceae, Nymphaeaceae, Posidoniaceae, Potamogetonaceae, Proteaceae, Ruppiaceae, Scheuchzeriaceae, Sparganiaceae, Tetragoniaceae, Zannichelliaceae, Zosteraceae, Zygophyllaceae. Common names were not yet available in all languages. By April 2015 Euro+Med Plantbase provided access to 190 plant families, corresponding to ca. 95 % of the European flora of vascular plants.
