Plant Parasites of Europe

leafminers, galls and fungi

Why is “my” plant not mentioned?

Almost always because the plant is discussed in the site is under a more modern name. For practically each scientific plant name there exist a number of synonyms. It is not possible to incorporate them into the site. As far as possible the botanical nomenclature in the site adheres to the Euro+Med PlantBase, and with a check there most of the times the current name of the plant is easily found. If this approach fails (ornamental plants, hybrids) often The Plant List brings a solution.
But as a matter of fact, not any plant that grows in Europe is discussed. Greenhouse plants, indoor ornamentals, uncommon ornamentals, exotics on botanical gardens, and cultivars are not dealt with.
