AnnonBase includes all published names of Annonaceae of any rank worldwide. The idea of this development is to serve as a concise taxonomic backbone for basic as well as applied scientific studies. The AnnonBase source database also includes references to type material and their location of deposit. Future releases will include information on vernacular names, distributional data and links to relevant information sources. Database development and maintenance has been done at the University of Vienna funded by the Universities of Utrecht and Vienna and the European Commission.
