Abstract: Flora of Equatorial Guinea is a research project coordinated by the Real Jardín Botánico of Madrid with the aim to produce a modern Flora for this almost unknown territory. One of our goals is to develop the website www. floradeguinea.com. A system of relational databases with an implemented Thesaurus - to minimize typographical mistakes - allows the on-line managing and updating of nomenclatural information, herbarium specimens, literature records, vernacular names and bibliography. Images and maps are also linked to accepted names. We are now implementing interactive keys for identification. In our wiki-based system, Scans of herbarium specimens from all species growing in the country are also being uploaded. Species from neighboring countries are included as well, since some of them could appear in Equatorial Guinea.
