NCU-3. Names in Current Use for Extant Plant Genera.

Electronic version (0.3) now available on the WWW:

The database has been generated from word processor files used for
producing the camera-ready copy of the printed volume of NCU-3.
Numerous corrections of detail have already been effected, so that the
e-version in some respects represents an update of the printed
version. However, many records may still contain errors introduced in
the conversion process.

The Website also offers the text of the foreword, acknowledgements,
and introduction from the printed edition of NCU-3  (published in
1993 by Koeltz Scientific Books for the International Association for
Plant Taxonomy as vol. 129 of the Regnum Vegetabile series).

The electronic version will be continuously improved, expanded and
updated, (a) to correct inconsistencies of format, (b) to rectify
errors and omissions in the present entries, (c) to add wanting items
and delete inappropriate ones, and (d) to account for post-1990 names
not presently included. New versions will be made available at

All interested users are invited to submit their suggestions.
