The remarkable plant diversity that characterizes Greece has been for long the focus of intense scientific interest. PhytoKaryon was conceived and built as an online database that will allow the accumulation of karyological data from all available bibliographical references concerning Greek flora.
The database currently includes 3281 records that correspond to approximately 1500 plant taxa of Greece. Each entry provides information for each karyological record as it appears in the original publication on taxonomy, chromosome number, karyotype morphology, specimen details, information on collecting locality of the studied material, IUCN status and reference details. PhytoKaryon will be used extensively in the future for continuous recording of all plants (~6.500 species and subspecies) of Flora Hellenica.
