Welcome to the Scratchpads for the Flora of Thailand!

The Scratchpads for the Flora of Thailand aims to provide a web-based platform where authors manage, share, and publish taxonomic data online. It will eventually bring together taxonomic data of all of Thailand’s 303 plant families, with keys, descriptions, uses, illustrations, maps, and high-quality photographs of the estimated total number of 10,624 species.

Key aims of the Scratchpads for the Flora of Thailand include:

  • FAST dissemination of taxonomy
  • GREATER audience than printed flora
  • SYNERGY between remote groups
  • DYNAMIC / continuously updated flora

Scratchpads developed and conceived by (alphabetical): Ed Baker, Katherine Bouton Alice Heaton Dimitris Koureas, Laurence Livermore, Dave Roberts, Simon Rycroft, Ben Scott, Vince Smith
