Abstract: FLORHIMAL is a database concerning the flora of the Himalayas. It was first started in the 70s with the higher plants of Nepal and then extended in the 80s to the whole chain, from Eastern Afghanistan to Northern Myanmar, covering 2 000 000 km2. Untill the year 2000, it was only locally accessible at University of Grenoble (France). Since 2002, it is online on the web site of the Altitude Ecosystems Dynamic Laboratory (LDEA) of the University of Savoie (France) as Flora Himalaya Database. The database contents the names of more than 12 500 flowering plants from the Himalayas (species, subspecies, variety) with data on: authors's names; himalayan distribution among 15 biogeographical domaines; vertical distribution along 6 levels and 11 sublevels of vegetation; biogepgraphical origin; and, only for species growing in Nepal, habitats."
