Catalog of Vascular Plant Species
of Central and Northeastern Brazil


Specimens in the families listed below have been catalogued for this project. Click on a family name to see a list of names of genera and species in the family. Click on a genus or species name to see a list of detailed specimen records.

Clicking on a family name below initiates a search of the database that generates the list of taxa dynamically. This will take some time for those families with many records (i.e., hundreds or thousands). In general, the search time in seconds can be estimated by dividing the number of records in a family by ten. For example, generating a checklist of a family with 3087 records in the catalogue will take approximately 309 seconds (3087/10) or about 5 minutes.
