Activity description: The long-term goal of this task group is to create a distributed, web-based index of all known species--a Catalogue of Life--available as both a Dynamic Checklist and a stabilised Annual Checklist from Species 2000 and ITIS, to facilitate general global access to data on the world's organisms. One component of this is to create and maintain an authoritative distributed database (the Global Plant Checklist) of all plant species.
