Andean Flowering Plants



These are data on collections from Peru and our series of floristic inventories supported by National Geographic Society and National Science Foundation. Specifically, the database contains the specimen-label information from over 23,000 collections from northern Peru (Departments Amazonas, Ancash, Cajamarca, Piura, Lambayeque, La Libertad, San Martín). This database covers an area designated as a biodiversity hotspot and is exceptionally robust, in that the determinations of constituent records were largely provided by taxonomic experts. The database is used for generating labels, checklists, exsiccatae, and statistics.
