Taxonomic Nomenclature Checker

  


Taxonomic Nomenclature Checker

The main purpose of the Taxonomic Nomenclature Checker is to allow quick and convenient checking of large numbers of scientific names against other standardized databases. The Taxonomic Nomenclature Checker (TNC) currently checks lists of scientific names against two databases:
  • The Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN), United States Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service, USA.
    Go to the TNC - GRIN home page to check your list against GRIN
  • The Mansfeld's World Database of Agricultural and Horticultural Crops, Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK), Gatersleben, Germany.
    Go to the TNC - Mansfeld home page to check your list against the Mansfeld database
Please note that because the checking of your data against GRIN or Mansfeld is name-based, not taxon- or concept-based, no conceptual difference between the application of a name in your data and in GRIN or Mansfeld is assumed in the result.
