The Plant List — A working list for all plant species

⚠ Version 1 of The Plant List has been superseded.

You should refer instead to the current version of The Plant List.


Comments on the data set

The Plant List is no longer accepting any comments concerning the data. Future updates of the original data sources will be made to the World Flora Online taxonomic backbone, and not to The Plant List.

Please send your suggestions and comments to the WFO Taxonomic Working Group:
