Abstract: The Conifer database is a taxonomic and specimen database of all 619 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 new handbook of Conifers. Work on the database is in progress. Over 4,000 new conifer common names in 20 languages have been contributed as a result of a 4D4Life pilot project.
