|Title:||ELPT : Early Land Plants Today|
|Creator:||Konrat, Matt von; et al.|
|Abstract:||Liverworts (Marchantiophyta) are pivotal in our understanding of early land plant evolution. They form a conspicuous and important component in many terrestrial ecosystems throughout the world. The objective is to unify the vastly scattered biological literature and data on liverwort taxonomy, nomenclature, and geography. The unification of nomenclatural, taxonomic, and geographical data has many implications and useful applications, including the study of species richness, patterns of diversity, and conservation. This dataset will serve taxonomists in developing a working list of all known liverwort species, a target set to be reached by 2010 by the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation. This is a collaborative effort spearheaded by The Field Museum and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Currently, 28 individuals are participating from 20 institutions representing 12 countries. [Information of the supplier]|
