Subject: Completion of 'The Plant List'

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and Missouri Botanical Garden, announce the completion of The Plant List

As the 2010 United Nations International Year of Biodiversity comes to a close, the Missouri Botanical Garden (MBG) and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (RBG Kew) announce the completion of The Plant List. This landmark international resource is a working list of all land plant species1, fundamental to understanding and documenting plant diversity and effective conservation of plants.

Completion of The Plant List accomplishes Target 1 of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC), which called for a widely accessible working list of known plant species as a step towards a complete world flora. The Plant List can be accessed by visiting:   www.theplantlist.org<http://www.theplantlist.org>.

Wonderful information Garg ji. Thanks for the same. One observation - a lot more relatively  (percentage wise) Ids are unresolved than on our site!! Perhaps the advantage we have is the multidisciplinary team, Kew does not have the same. !!
