FLOW is an on-line database on planthoppers (Insecta, Hemiptera, Fulgoromorpha). The primary goals of the project are to organize and to give easy access to the published taxonomic and biological data already available on this group and to facilitate and promote fundamental and applied research in Fulgoromorpha. In the future, FLOW will provide an up-to-date referenced database on Fulgoromorpha taxonomy, with information about planthopper primary data: morphology (project FAME - Fulgoromorpha Anatomy and Morphology Exploration), molecular data, etho-ecology (including photos) and biogeography. FLOW and FAME are part of the BEFRI (Biodiversity and Evolution of Fulgoromorpha: a global Research Initiative) project.
