Species Plantarum is a cooperative project to write a descriptive account of the world’s vascular flora at species level. It is being organised under the auspices of the International Organisation for Plant Information (IOPI), and is managed by a Steering Committee of taxonomists from over 30 countries. The series is to be published in both hard copy and electronically. From 1999 to 2005, editing and publication of the hard copy version was managed by the Australian Biological Resources Study. The series is now published and distributed by Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques in Geneva.

Parts are published as manuscripts become available. Each part is self-contained and covers a contiguous group, either a family, subfamily, group of related genera or (for very large genera) a subgenus. The size of individual parts varies depending on the group covered, but except in the case of small families, covers a minimum of about 50 species and a maximum of 400–500 species.

Information for contributors

Writing of the contributions is entirely voluntary, and no financial assistance is available to support this activity. Those interested in joining the project should contact:
