Welcome to the RBGE Gesneriaceae Resource Centre (GRC)

This website provides information to researchers interested in the plant family Gesneriaceae. It currently includes information on scientific names, infra-family classification, publications and cytology.

This is an ongoing project which has grown out of the 'World Checklist of Gesneriaceae' databases previously hosted at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History (Department of Botany, US), and is constantly being updated and expanded. Please contact us with errors, omissions and suggestions.

GRC includes several searchable taxonomic databases, found under the ‘Data’ tab. These currently include:

‘Nomenclature’ (a names database),
‘Checklists’ (for exportable genus-level lists),

‘Bibliography’ (under construction).

To the right are search forms as shortcuts to the ‘Nomenclature’ and 'Bibliography' databases.
