Vascular Plants Checklist of Greece

The Annotated Checklist of the Flora of Greece is a checklist of the Vascular Plants of Greece. Vascular plants of Greece: An annotated checklist (Dimopoulos & al. 2013), constitutes the first comprehensive inventory of the flora of Greece more than a century after Eugen von Halacsy, a Vienna-born physician and botanist of Hungarian origin, had finalized the most recent complete Flora of the country (Halacsy 1900 – 1904, with supplements in 1908 and 1912). The checklist is a living thing that will be systematically and at regular intervals amended and updated as new scientific knowledge emerges. This checklist has hopefully sped up other initiatives that have been undertaken (June 2017), such as the Flora of Greece, and in the near future a new and complete Red Data Book of endangered plants, the national list of endemics and so on.

The Flora of Greece Web

Through this website, "Flora of Greece" Web the printed version of the Vascular Plants Checklist of Greece (Dimopoulos et al. 2013) and its Supplement (Dimopoulos et al. 2016) are available for the public in electronic format.

In the 1st version of the "Flora of Greece" Web, under the EDIT platform (May 2017), taxonomic and floristic novelties published after October 2013 are not considered. All the new published information from November 2013 to December 2017 were considered and uploaded gradually; this information is summarized in the 2nd version of the Flora of Greece web (published information up to May 2018).

The current 3rd Version of the Flora of Greece web (Version III, April 2020), summarizes all the published information from May 2018 to the end of March 2020.

Special effort has been made for this web site to be equally accessible and usable via mobile devices (smartphones and tablets), so that it can be accessed from everywhere (as long as internet access is available).
