The Flora of China Checklist provides on-line access to information concerning the ferns and seed plants of China.
The information includes floristic and nomenclatural data. The floristic data includes distribution, name status, and references to the Chinese-language Flora Reipublicae Popularis Sinicae [FRPS], the English-language Flora of China [FOC], and the FOC Illustration volumes. Synonymy follows the FOC (completed volumes). System links within the project will display information about the linked name, bibliographic record, specimen, and image; the drop down 'Choose Project' on the upper right, provides access to the current name in Tropicos and other projects treating the taxon. The information presented here represents the working Checklist database.
Select a Family, genus or species from the lists at left to see information about that taxon. A search for a scientific name can also be made using the Name Search box at left to go directly to information gathered for that taxon. Support was provided by various annual grants from the U.S. National Science Foundation, the Starr Foundation, and the Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust.
