The data represents the living collections in culture at the Montreal Botanical Garden. The collection is therefore dynamic and is subject to constant change as accessions are removed (due to mortality for example) and new ones are added on a continual basis. The data will be updated once a year in January.
BG-Base is the database used by the Montreal Botanical Garden. Accessions qualified as alive as of January of the current year are extracted from the database. Excluded from this dataset are annuals as well as nursery cultivated material (for example seedlings).
Inventories are performed for most collections on an annual basis. Material is accessioned under the name it is originally received. Nomenclatural revisions are regularly undertaken to assure that the nomenclature of the material in culture reflects current knowledge. However, formal identification of the material in culture is not systematically done.
