The Atlas provides detailed information on 105 species or subspecies of wild Guatemalan plants that are related to crops, including their description, distribution, diversity and conservation status. The species are organized into genepools corresponding to the 29 crops that were chosen for this study because of their economic, cultural and biological importance.
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.
This work brings together more than 18,000 common names used in Spanish to designate plants in Colombia, as well as some names in the Creole English of the Caribbean islands of San Andrés and Old Providence. It brings together the largest collection of Colombian plant common names ever documented. All names recorded for each species are presented, providing information about the name’s origin, when known, and the regions where it is applied.

CNPS has tracked plants that are rare from a statewide perspective since the late 1960's with over 2,000 taxa currently considered by CNPS to be rare statewide. The mission of the CNPS Rare Plant Program is to develop current, accurate information on the distribution, ecology, and conservation status of California's rare and endangered plants, and to use this information to promote science-based plant conservation in California.
Welcome to the latest edition of the Native Plants Database. From this page you can explore the wealth of native plants in North America. Use the options below to search for 7,219 native plants by scientific or common name or choose a particular family of plants.

The New York Flora Atlas is a source of information for the distribution of plants within the state, as well as information on plant habitats, associated ecological communities, and taxonomy. In addition, users can learn about the location of vouchered specimens and see images to get a better visual for each plant.
Research papers (RPs) provide results, analyses, conclusions of formal studies.
Based on available science, the plants recommended here were found in this region prior to the arrival of the colonists at Jamestown, thus making them native plants. A panel of local experts chose these plants based on their current or potential availability, their overall aesthetic interest, and their likelihood to grow well without major care.

This dataset lists the vascular plants found in a region of central New York State extending from 42 N to 43 N, and 76 W to 77 W (the USGS "Cayuga Quadrangle"), plus a small area north of 43 degrees in the "Cayuga Lake Basin" of early published floras. This multi-county area extends from the Pennsylvania border to north of the Finger Lakes, and from Seneca Lake eastward to just west of Binghamton.
The main purpose of BioStor is to find articles in the Biodiversity Heritage Library. BioStor provides tools for extracting, annotating, and visualising literature from the Biodiversity Heritage Library (and other sources).

This database began life as a repository of information for projects on New Zealand weeds, and wetland plants. It holds a list of all native and all naturalised higher plant species. Most effort to date has been on entering data on the naturalised flora and this information is updated from time to time. The ecological trait data covers world and local distributional data, morphological, reproduction, and other attributes that influence species' environmental responses, and interactions with other plants and animals. Attributes relevant to weed management such as response to damage, reproduction capacity, seed longevity, and weed status elsewhere are included. The database does not capture information on weed control methods. Data are derived from publications and databases on the the New Zealand Floras and many other publications.
Flora del Bajío and Adjacent Regions publish the inventory of vascular plant species that grow wild in the states of Guanajuato, Querétaro and the northern part of Michoacan, Mexico. The latter includes areas located east of the meridian 102º 10 'W and north of the watershed of the Balsas river basin.
First North Dakota flora checklist since 1963. The list is based mainly on three herbarium databases (many thanks to Shawn DeKeyser and Kathryn Yurkonis!) and also USDA PLANTS database. The last was especially useful as a source of synonymy and common names. Please note that cultivated and wild plants are not yet well separated. Nevertheless, if we estimate that we have ~ 150 cultivated plant species, state flora is still much more diverse that was previously thought — approximately 1800 species.
The Jepson Flora Project brings together all of the floristic references and data of the Jepson Herbarium. Resources of the Flora Project are directly linked the the Consortium of California Herbaria, CalPhotos, the California Native Plant Society, California Exotic Pest Plant Council, USDA-Plants database, and many other external sites. the Jepson Flora Project, provides users with a single interface from which they can find the most comprehensive, scientifically accurate sources of information on the California flora

Individuals or organisations undertake to document, develop and preserve a comprehensive collection of one group of plants in trust for the future. Most of the collections are based around a related group, for example a collection of oaks or daffodils. This allows the scheme to develop systematic coverage of cultivated plants in the United Kingdom.
The National Wetland Plant List (NWPL) represents a collaborative effort between four Federal agencies, under the administrative responsibilities of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to update and administer the national list. In a several-year effort, the NWPL was updated for nomenclature, taxonomy, and wetland ratings for 8,154 species across the United States and territories. The wetland ratings represent the frequency of occurrence of a plant species in a wetland and are used in direct support of the Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, the Swampbuster provisions under the Farm Bill, and the National Wetland Inventory Program.
