We have established a simple database for plant historical biogeography which is accessible under


The intention of this database is to facilitate the search for comparative data in the area of historical plant biogeography. Accordingly, you can search by taxon, distribution range and age (of origin of a range) either alone or in combination. First entries can be found under, e.g., Chenopodiaceae, Gentianaceae, Plantaginaceae, Poaceae, Restionaceae. The database will only be filled through the input of data by authors of biogeographical publications. As the usefulness of the database increases with the amount of data it contains, it would be helpful if you could enter your own data. Plant images and distribution maps can be added to your information on taxon, distribution and age.

Any contribution is greatly appreciated!
