Flora of the Guianas

Topobea Parasitica

The Flora of the Guianas is a long term project dedicated to the taxonomic treatment of all plant species occurring within the borders of French Guiana, Suriname and Guyana. I have been making efforts to disclose its content in a free and open platform.

The ultimate goal is to change the Flora workflow in a system that will deliver species descriptions and related data freely available on the web for:

  • tools for data representation and extraction
  • fast publication time
  • content updates through peer-review (for instance the Encyclopedia of Life)
