Neotropical Plant Families Database



Back in 2008 when this database went live the plan was to add all the other 35 small Neotropical plant families. I managed to complete plant lists for 13 families : Setchellanthaceae, Tovariaceae, Tropaeolaceae, Achatocarpaceae, Halophytaceae, Pellicieraceae, Ticodendraceae, Martyniaceae, Plocospermataceae, Gomortegaceae, Muntingiaceae, Alzateaceae and Peridiscaceae and all these families were available through LHD from the Catalogue of Life.

The other families were completed by Michael Hassler to create the World Plants database available on the Catalogue of Life (CoL). With the demise of LHD/NPFD on the Catalogue of Life all these families are now part of the World Plants database. So I have provided links to CoL and the Angiosperm Phylogeny Website (APG).

Some of the families have now been merged with others. Please refer to the journal article : The Angiosperm Phylogeny Group (2016) An update of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG IV, Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society, The Linnean Society, London.
