Data Sources

Data are mostly derived from good floristic accounts for each species, with additional descriptions derived from the original published description. For species where neither of these is available specimens were examined and coded directly where possible. No complete list of data sources has been kept although there is some indication as to the data source in the Notes section of each description.

While this can sometimes be cryptic it helps as a guide to good sources of data. Using the GrassBase – Synonymy database will enable you to find the full synonymy and publication details for each name.
