The International Plant Names Index (IPNI) is a database of the names and associated basic bibliographical details of seed plants, ferns and fern allies. Its goal is to eliminate the need for repeated reference to primary sources for basic bibliographic information about plant names. The data are freely available and are gradually being standardized and checked.
IPNI is the product of a collaboration between The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, The Harvard University Herbaria, and the Australian National Herbarium. The records in IPNI come from three sources: the Index Kewensis (IK), the Gray Card Index (GCI) and the Australian Plant Names Index (APNI). Detailed information about these indices is available through the links above.
Copies, including electronic, may be made of the data held within this database for your own use or for use within your organisation. It may be used in the compilation of a bibliography supplemental to work of your own preparation. If you do find it useful then please cite us. The maximum number of records which can be downloaded from this website is 5,000. If you wish to download a larger dataset or make use of the data in ways other than those described above please contact the editors.
