The Global Flora is a new international serial for botanical taxonomy, to provide accepted species-level classifications for all vascular plant families. The serial has three series: (A) Angiosperms (following APG IV, 2016); (B) Lycopods, Ferns and Gymnosperms (classification following Christenhusz et al., 2017); and (C) special editions. The first two series will only treat monophyletic taxa on a global scale (e.g. family, subfamily, tribe, genus or section). The special editions series aims to make significant contributions to the body of plant systematic knowledge and typically will be of a global botanical scope.
The purpose of this glossary is to provide definitions that are used in the descriptions and keys of this and other web sites.
The Nomenclature database currently holds over 60,000 names. The database: * provides lists of names for any given genus, geographical region or genus within a geographical region; * finds the accepted name, synonyms and distribution for any given name. * links to the GrassBase description for the accepted name of of any species.
