The project will develop a state-of-the-art information system for European and Mediterranean plants. A major output will be a catalogue of European plants with synonyms, based on consensus taxonomy, for a wide range of EU users with an unambiguous source of information for its biodiversity commitments. The project builds on the experience of the successful flora European approach: consensus taxonomy by involvement of a network of specialists throughout the area. It will start from the electronic data set of the ESF European Documentation System, upgrade and apply new software for comparing data sets, revise and extend coverage to all recognised taxa in the area, develop additional verified data for conservationists, ecologists and others on distribution, mapping, conservation status, genetic resources and karyology, together with links to other databases.
