Abstract: The International Organization for Plant Information (IOPI) aims to produce a database of all vascular plant species and other products such as a World Flora. The checklist currently holds over 200,000 names and implements the innovative potential taxon concept. Data for the cycads and 5 flowering plant families are included in this Annual Checklist. Cycad data come from World List of Cycads (htttp://plantnet.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/PlantNet/cycad/) maintained by K.D. Hill (NSW) & D.W. Stevenson (New York Botanical Garden), 2004. Casuarinaceace data supplied by K.L. Wilson and L.A.S. Johnson† (Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney), 1996. Chrysobalanaceae data supplied by G.T. Prance & C.A. Sothers (Royal Botanic Gardens Kew), 2003. Eucalypt data supplied by K.D. Hill & L.C. Stanberg (Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney), 2004. Irvingiaceae data supplied by D.J. Harris (Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh), 1999. Juncaceae data compiled by J. Kirschner (Institute of Botany, Pruhonice), 2002.
