Abstract: The International Legume Database and Information Service (ILDIS) is a long-term programme of co-operation among legume specialists world-wide to create a biodiversity database for the Leguminosae (Fabaceae) family. The database provides a taxonomic checklist plus basic factual data on distribution, common names, life-forms, uses, literature references to descriptions, illustrations and maps. Information on species distribution has been converted into TDWG Level 4 areas as a result of 4D4Life pilot project. ILDIS editors thank Sergey Jeznyakowsky for data export for the Catalogue of Life.
