Database and Website
The Vanuatu National Herbarium, a unit of the Department of Forestry, is pleased to announce the establishment of a new Flora of Vanuatu database and website. This replaces an older database, based on the PlantNote application. Data from PlantNote had been used to populate the Vanuaflora website, but had become outdated and largely defunct, with no new uploads since 2015. The Flora of Vanuatu site combines database and website into a single function, using the Symbiota platform. The URL is pvnh.net. Plant data is available to the public through this website (but sensitive data, such as locations of rare species, are hidden), and through website logins, herbarium staff can access the collection from any computer with Internet access.
