Abstract

Updates to Western Australia's vascular plant census for 2012.

Abstract

The census database at the Western Australian Herbarium (PERTH) lists current names and recent synonymy for Western Australia's native and naturalised vascular plants, as well as algae, bryophytes, lichens, slime moulds and some fungi. The names represented in the census are either sourced from published research or denote as yet unpublished names based on herbarium voucher specimens. This paper summarises the changes made to vascular plant records in this database during 2012.
