Flora of China Checklist

The Flora of China Checklist will include accepted botanical names, synonyms, and their bibliographical citations; reference to the volume, page, and year in which the taxon was treated in the Flora of China and Fl. Reipublicae Popularis Sin.; distribution in China (at the provincial level) and in areas neighboring China; altitudinal ranges; and status (whether the taxon is endemic, indigenous, naturalized, or cultivated in China). Full cross-references of accepted names and synonyms will be given. The checklist is part of the major database of Missouri Botanical Garden, which will include additional information on type specimens, chromosome numbers, and other relevant data. An HTML interface to the Checklist is available. The web interface creates lists of accepted names and new taxa.
