Abstract: The newly-founded organisation “NetPhyD” (“Phytodiversity Network Germany”) will inform visitors about the goals, current activities and developments in the individual sections of the network on its website. Why do we need a Phytodiversity Network? And why a phytodiversity network in Germany? The answer is obvious. Roughly 35 years ago, the central agency for floristic mapping was founded. With this “establishment” came the first time, initially for West Germany, then also the eastern part of Germany and finally for all Germany, that all floristic botanists were brought together in one network. This eventually resulted in the publication of the atlases of the distribution of vascular plants in West and East Germany. Since this time, as the effort to produce a nationwide distribution atlas takes place – the data has already been merged, the final corrections are still pending – countless further initiatives are beginning, that can answer questions such as “Why can a plant taxon be found where?”, “Why is one species common and another rare?”, “Why is one species endangered, while another spreads further?”. NetPhyD will support, coordinate and integrate these initiatives. [Information of the supplier, translated and modified]
