World Checklist of Selected Plant Families (WCSP) - Published

WCSP is an international collaborative resource. The website publishes peer reviewed accounts of the scientific names, synonyms and distribution for all species belonging to 173 seed plant families. WCSP enables you to find a plant using any of its scientific names or retrieve all scientific names for a particular plant, or the areas of the world in which it grows. For those families covered, WCSP enables you to create a checklist for the plants in a particular place. The resource is facilitated by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew with input from over 155 collaborators in 22 countries.
