Backbone 26th December 2021

In this 2021-12-26 edition of the GBIF Backbone we have updated various sources but kept configurations and the software as it was.

Data source changes

The Catalogue of Life (COL) Checklist version October 2021 has been used as the basis and for most of the hierarchy. The WCVP Fabaceae source was updated to the latest edition. As always Plazi has been adding many new publications containing new species descriptions.
