A taxonomic synopsis of Altingiaceae with nine new combinations
The dataset was produced in support of a taxonomic synopsis of Altingiaceae (sweet-gum family) and is based on ~ 1,5000 herbarium voucher specimens across the distributional range of the Altingiaceae and is derived from consultation of ~20 herbaria.
Publication that have used some of the current data include: Morris, A.B., S.M. Ickert-Bond, B.D. Brunson, D.E. Soltis, and P.S. Soltis. 2008.
