IPNI is compiled and managed by the Plant Names Project, a consortium comprising the Harvard University Herbaria, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and the Australian National Herbarium.
The International Plant Names Index (IPNI) is a database of the names and associated basic bibliographical details of all seed plants. Its goal is to eliminate the need for repeated reference to primary sources for basic bibliographic information about plant names. The data are freely available and are gradually being standardized and checked.
