Euro+Med taxonomic backbone
Flat file version of the Euro+Med database, derived through the EDIT platform web services
- The EDIT platform Euro+Med database was created on 2019-05-21T07:19:55.000+02:00
- it contains one Classification, i.e. the Euro+Med classification
- The statistics web service gives:
"Accepted_taxa": 62664, "Synonyms": 95771, "Descriptions": 65970, "References": 5566,
"Descriptive_source_references": 5238, "Taxon_names": 153348, "All_taxa": 158435,
However, the web service is outdated and its reliability is unclear! Moreover, accepted taxa include unpublished taxa,
i.e. species which does not appear in Europe, have unproved status, or are excluded for other reasons.
For realistic numbers of accepted taxa see version info.
- The list presented here contains only published taxa
and a very restricted set of essential attributes within a flat table.
Synonyms are displayed as separate lines and connected to accepted taxa through column TaxonConceptID
Synonyms are premarily taxonomic (i.e. name) synonyms, but in cases concept synonymie is given through an indication
of a partial synonymie ("p. p. Synonym" in column Status.
- version 1.2 (2020/02/02) improved synonymy and hierarchy, p.p. synonyms and misapplied names are now marked.
49573 Accepted Taxa, 82620 Synonyms, 229 p.p. Synonyms, and 1004 Misapplications
From 143071 published taxa 9645 have been deleted for this version. These include duplicated names of (p.p.) synoynms,
doubtful taxa, and 29 duplicates which still have to be checked.
- version 1.1 (2020/01/29) with 134069 lines: some taxa like Zostera marina were missing in 1.0,
now all accepted taxa should be included (51309 out of 143070).
- version 1.0 (2020/01/26) with 128655 lines
- Retrieved on 2020-01-23 to 25
- approx. 135,000 rows
- approx. 45,000 valid taxa
- several 100 names and taxa missing
Turboveg version: A version of the Euro+Med list to be used by the vegetation database program
Turboveg for Windows.
Since TV uses only a 5 digit numeric field to store taxon id's, synonyms are excluded to reduce the number of names.
This page aims to project the Euro+Med database into a flat table format and to provide
unambiguous taxon names without duplicate names. The list includes a taxonomic hierarchy by parent relationships.
