have joined to form the Biodiversity Heritage Library Project. The group is
developing a strategy and operational plan to digitize the published literature
of biodiversity held in their respective collections.
For the first time in history, the core of our natural history and herbaria library
collections will be available to a truly global audience. Browse by titles, authors,

Subject to ratification by the XVI International Botanical Congress (St Louis, 1999) of a rule already included in the International code of botanical nomenclature (Art. 32.1-2 of the Tokyo Code), new names of plants and fungi will have to be registered in order to be validly published after the 1st of January 2000. To demonstrate feasibility of a registration system, IAPT undertakes a trial of registration, on a non-mandatory basis, for a two-years period starting 1 January 1998.

The Compendium Index of North American
Mesozoic and Cenozoic Type Fossil Plants (PDF files).
This card catalog contains illustrations and descriptions of fossil plant species.
Based on variables such as leaf shape and major venation type
these cards are arranged into
sets of numbered morphological categories.
It presently covers fossil floras from North America, including Greenland, starting in the
Triassic and extending to the Pleistocene.
Over 93 references have been added in the last 20 years, and the
Compendium Index has grown from 10,000 cards to
approximately 20,000 cards, with 9,881 entries from 235 references dating
from 1866 to 2003. Freely distributable for non-commercial purposes.

Index Nominum Genericorum (ING). The ING, a collaborative project of the International Association for Plant Taxonomy (IAPT) and the Smithsonian Institution, was initiated in 1954 as a compilation of generic names published for all organisms covered by the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature. Current work on the ING is supported by the Smithsonian Institution, IAPT, and the University of Utrecht, Utrecht, The Netherlands. The content of the database was developed over a 40-year period by the efforts of more than 100 collaborators. Enter a generic name in the ING Generic Name Query Form. Search by the full spelling of the name or if you are uncertain you can use a wild card search by entering a string of letters followed by an asterisk (e.g., Asteranth*).
