World Checklist of selected plant families
Title: World Checklist of selected plant families
Title abbreviated: World Checklist

Abstract: This Checklist gives information on the accepted scientific names and synonyms of selected plant families (including 150 Seed Plant families). The main focus of the checklist is to provide the state of current knowledge on a family rather than revising a family, a task that is being undertaken by the Species Plantarum programme. Included is also associated data like author, place of publication, full synonymy, geographical distribution and life form. The two main research elements are the name and the distribution, both of which can be used to create individually tailored checklists. Different families are in different stages of review as indicated in the family list. [Information of the supplier]
