LegumeWeb page loading:  please wait LegumeWeb is a service giving access to the ILDIS World Database of Legumes.
Please note that at present we are testing this service. Facilities may be altered without warning. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know. Contact details are given at the bottom of the page.

This is the LegumeWeb long form. If this forms looks too complicated, there is also a simple form which allows you to specify just the binomial (genus and species name).

Genus species

One or more asterisks ("*") may be used to match parts of a name, for example "A*a" will match "Acacia" and "Alexa" but not "Arachis". If the genus or species is left blank (equivalent to "*" on its own), all genera or species will be searched.

Search for up to matching names, including synonyms.
As above, then search for and report only the names currently accepted by ILDIS.
As above, then fetch the data held by ILDIS for a taxon.
