The Botany Department of The Field Museum are developing Taxon Pages, which include information on nomenclature and synonymy, descriptions, remarks, notes on distribution and ecology, and images. Data for bryophytes is also being provided as part of the Early Land Plants Today Project (Matt von Konrat, Anders Hagborg, Lars Söderström) supported by GBIF. The Botany Taxon Pages project collaborates closely with the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) project and the Biodiversity Synthesis Center (Mark Westneat, Audrey Aronowsky), and all species and higher taxa data will be made available to the EOL. Taxon pages are available for the following list of taxa and serve as a testing phase of the project.
