Australian Plant CensusAcronym: APC
The Australian Plant Census is a database of the accepted scientific names for the Australian vascular flora, ferns, gymnosperms, hornworts and liverworts, both native and introduced, and lists synonyms and misapplications for these names. The APC will cover all published scientific plant names used in an Australian context in the taxonomic literature, but excludes taxa (including cultivars) known only from cultivation in Australia. The taxonomy and nomenclature adopted for the APC are endorsed by the Council of Heads of Australasian Herbaria (CHAH).
The Australian Plant Census uses names from the Australian Plant Name Index (APNI).
APNI and APC are maintained at the Centre for Australian National Biodiversity Research with staff, resources and financial support from the Australian National Herbarium, Australian National Botanic Gardens and the Australian Biological Resources Study. The CANBR, ANBG and ABRS collaborate to further the updating and delivery of APNI and APC.
