The Conifer database is a taxonomic and specimen database of all 630 species of conifers in the world based on herbarium specimens from many herbaria. The database has been compiled primarily as a tool for taxonomic revisions and to produce checklists and reports. Work on the database is in progress so not all information is available for all species.
