Chromosome counts from the publication series Index to Plant
Chromosome Numbers (IPCN) have been incorporated into the Missouri
Botanical Garden's VAST (VAScular Tropicos) nomenclatural database
and associated authority files.

The WWW address is:

Although I can see the advantages of one large integrated database, I
personally find that searching out the chromosome numbers for plant
species slow and truncated compared to their old IPCN searchable index.

Incidentally, I have compiled an Index of Chromosome Numbers of New
Zealand Indigenous Spermatophytes sheduled for publication in the New
Zealand Journal of Botany in the year 2000.  Hopefully a searchable
version will be placed on the Landcare Research Website within that

Hope this helps,

Dear Taxacomers,

        I am looking for a website where we can search for chromosome
numbers in
plants. Does someone know if it does exist ? I am interested in
counts in Leguminosae tribe Phaseoleae subtribe Diocleinae, mainly
Galactia, Collaea, Camptosema, Cratylia and Dioclea. Any informations
be very wellcome.

        Thanks in advance
