Allium Species - Master List:   p - r

[ Bibliography ]  [ Allium Species Homepage ]  [ N. American Allium ]  [ Allium Synonyms ]  [ Allium Central ]


This list of valid Allium species is currently under construction, with names added to the list weekly as research data is entered.  Anticipated completion is September 2001.  An attempt is made to list all valid Allium species, and to offer suggestions regarding taxonomic standing when there are conflicting opinions.  For each species listed, the following is included: author citation, species publication date, synonyms (with their own author citations), height and flower color, general distribution, habitat, major reference citation(s), links to photos (if any), and general notes.  The genus "section" that each species belongs is not always included here due to inconsistencies of opinion assigning the genus subdivisions.  However, this aspect might be added in later. This list should be used in conjunction with other associated lists, including: bibliography, bibliography discussion, synonyms list (alphabetical), and a list of dubious names and misnomers.
How many allium species are there?  Botanical references guess at the number of species, running the gamut from 500 - 1000 species (that's quite a wide range).   Numbering the species in HTML format is too difficult to manage, however when the input of species nears completion, the totals will be listed on this page.

Total number of species: ###    Total number of intraspecific taxa: ###     Total number of taxa: ####
