Flora von Bayern ─ Münchner Team für Daten und Infrastruktur

The project "Coordination office for flora conservation issues in Bavaria" is preceeded by the project Flora of Bavaria: Data management in DWB and concept development for the publication of a flora

Beginning in 2012, the data from plant inventories and monitoring projects, which were formerly managed by the "Zentralstelle für die floristische Kartierung Bayerns" in Regensburg, were transferred into the database system of the Diversity Workbench developed and maintained at the IT Center of the Bavarian Natural History Collections (Staatliche Naturwissenschaftliche Sammlungen Bayerns or SNSB). The maintenance and technical and content development of these databases are crucial for the continued usability and utility of these data.

From 2018 onwards, the new coordination office is built up at the SNSB. It serves as the focal point for maintaining and enlarging the plant data, including encouraging and supporting efforts for professionals, expert volunteers and citizen scientists. To receive this goal, the coordination office works closely together with the Bavarian Environmental Agency (Bayerische Landesamt für Umwelt or LfU, the AG Flora of Bavaria and all experts for inventories and monitoring projects in Bavaria.

The Botanische Staatssammlung München, part of the SNSB, will provide sustainable domain-specific data management, continuing its longtime close cooperation with the Landesamt für Umwelt.
