Check-list with scientific synonymy and English name where known.
The plant list is split into four groups, namely Pteridophyta, Gymnospermae, Dicotyledones and Monocotyledones; family parameters follow the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group, but the “old” division into Dicots and Monocots is retained. Within these groups all families, genera, species and subspecies are listed in alphabetical order. Scientiﬁc names are as in the Euro+Med Plantbase, Strid & Kit Tan Flora Hellenica, Chilton & Turland Flora of Crete: a Supplement, Turland, Chilton & Press Flora of the Cretan Area: Annotated Checklist & Atlas, Meikle Flora of Cyprus. English names are given, where known. This list covers the entire island of Cyprus, without differentiation between the two sectors. The annotation ‘N. Cyprus‘ simply refers to the northern part of the island and not to any political entity.
Scientiﬁc names in italics and [square brackets] indicate species that are deﬁnitely not native to the Cyprus area. Scientiﬁc names in (round brackets) are synonyms, mostly those used in Flora Europaea. Scientiﬁc names in “quotation marks” are misidentiﬁcations.
? - before a name indicates uncertainty as to whether it occurs in the Cyprus area.
incl. = includes incl. in = (formerly) included in
s.l. = sensu lato = the species in the wider sense, where the taxon as it occurs in Cyprus cannot be assigned to a subspecies.
Endemic - indicates a plant conﬁned to the area speciﬁed. Taxa marked with a 0 are endemic to Cyprus.
For detailed descriptions and identiﬁcation keys of nearly all the species listed, see Desmond Meikle's Flora of Cyprus, published in two volumes (1977, 1985) by the Bentham-Moxon Trust, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
