Abstract: The Global Compositae Checklist is an integrated database of nomenclatural and taxonomic information for the second largest vascular plant family in the world. It is compiled from many contributed datasets. The database will be continually updated. Distribution data in TDWG Geographic Standard format are included for approx. 3,700 species (12%) in this version as a result of 4D4Life pilot project. The distribution data are derived from contributed data and is not presumed to be comprehensive. Additional information such as references and infraspecific taxa will be added to the Catalogue of Life in the future. All species are marked as “provisionally accepted names” in Beta version. The dataset may contain some errors.
