The Center for Plant Conservation (CPC) is dedicated solely to preventing the extinction of U.S. native plants. The Center is a network of 39 leading botanic institutions. the Center operates the only coordinated national program of off-site (ex situ) conservation of rare plant material. This conservation collection ensures that material is available for restoration and recovery efforts for these species. CPC also works in research, restoration, technical assistance, education and advocacy through the efforts of the network and the national office.

Cultivar Checklists for Ornamental Plants 2000 is an updated version of Appendix XI, Checklists of Ornamental Cultivars, of the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants-1995, pp.89-140, which in turn was taken from Arnoldia 55(4):1-59 (1994-1995). Additions, corrections and updates to this list will appear on these Web pages.
This list has evolved from Arnold Menke's classic article "Funny or curious zoological names" (BOGUS, Volume -2, 1993 April Fool's Issue; 24-27 [yes, that's volume *negative* 2]), expanded to include some fungi and plants.
