Pakistan: Regional Checklists

Managers: Mary E. Barkworth
These checklists come from research in Pakistan. The regional checklists are being used to build a checklists for Khyber Pakhtunkwa and for Pakistan as a whole. The Pakistan checklist also draws from records cited in the Flora of Pakistan but not all are in as yet. Images for some of the taxa cited in the checklists are in the network. Any checklist can be viewed in image format by opening it up, then checking the appropriate box in the yellow tool panel that will be on the top right and then rebuilding the list. If you wish to share a checklist, please contact me (mary.barkworth [at] and I shall send you instructions.

Somaliland declared its independence from Somalia in 1991. It corresponds to British Somaliland. Some of the resources listed here are for both Somaliland and Somalia either because they were prepared between 1968 and 1991, when Somaliland was part of Somalia, or because they have been developed by agencies that work only in terms of countries recognied by the United Nations.
