Den botaniska skattkammaren – en digital svensk flora blir till

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The newly developed website ’Den botaniska skattkammaren’ [The botanic treasury;] is presented. It is intended to be gradually filled with miscellaneous information about vascular plant taxa found in, or expected to be found in Swedish nature (i.e. including all kinds of ephemerals and garden escapes). The material included will partly be newly produced, partly reproduced with permission from difficult-to-access sources such as local periodicals. The format of the materials included will differ and only minimal efforts will be put on the layout, but in order to faciliate reporting to national biodiversity databases the nomenclature will strictly follow the national taxonomic rectifiers Dyntaxa (for species known from Swedish nature) and Svensk Kulturväxtdatabas (for cultivated taxa). To begin with, the focus will be on determination keys to genera and species not well covered in modern Swedish floras, but morphological descriptions as well as all kinds of biologocal, ecological and biogeographic information may be added if and when the project is carried on.
