Abstract

Updates to Western Australia's vascular plant census for 2013.

Abstract

The census database at the Western Australian Herbarium (PERTH), which provides the nomenclature for the web site FloraBase (Western Australian Herbarium 1998-), lists current names and recent synonymy for Western Australia's native and naturalized 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 The names represented in the census are either sourced from published research or denote as yet unpublished names based on herbarium voucher specimens.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 publication summarizes the changes relating to vascular plants made to this database during 2013, the latest part of an annual series.
