Greetings Taxacomers:
I invite anyone interested in obtaining plant species names,
authorship, and synonymy to check the GRIN database.

This database is core of the botanical nomenclature for accessions
of the National Plant Germplasm System. It includes many
records of economic plants worldwide, and data on their uses, common
names, literature citation and distribution.

The database can be reached at

For queries on economic plants (those in trade or with some economic
impact to human activities) check
