List of electronic Floras

This list is incomplete; you can help by adding missing items. (May 2018)

This list of electronic Floras is arranged by country within continent. An electronic Flora is an online resource which provides descriptions of the associated plants, often also providing identification keys, or partial identification keys, to the plants described. Some Floras point to the literature associated with the plants of the region (flora Malesiana), others seek to show the plants of a region using images (flora of India), others give an inventory of the region's plants (flora of Pakistan).

Countries with sites listing both flora and fauna have also been included, since the sites provide a useful resource for those seeking to use a Flora.
