Abstract [en]

The Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) was established by the Conference of Parties in 2002 todecrease the loss of plant diversity, reduce poverty and contribute to sustainable development. To achieve thisoverarching goal, the GSPC has established a series of targets, one of which is to ensure that plant diversity iswell understood, so that it can be effectively conserved and used in a sustainable manner. Brazil hosts morethan 46,000 species of plants, algae and fungi, representing one of the most biodiverse countries on Earth, andplaying a key role in the GSPC. To meet the GSPC goals of Target 1 and facilitate access to plant diversity,Brazil committed to preparing the List of Species of the Brazilian Flora (2008–2015) and the Brazilian Flora2020 (2016–present). Managing all the information associated with such great biodiversity has proven to be anextremely challenging task. Here, we synthesize the history of these projects, focusing on the multidisciplinaryand collaborative approach adopted to develop and manage the inclusion of all the knowledge generated thoughdigital information systems. We further describe the methods used, challenges faced, and strategies adopted, aswell as summarize advances to date and prospects for completing the Brazilian flora in 2020.Key words: database, diversity, hotspots, taxonomy.

Abstract [pt]

A Estratégia Global para a Conservação das Plantas (GSPC) foi estabelecida pela Conferência das Partes em2002 para diminuir a perda da diversidade vegetal, reduzir a pobreza e contribuir para o desenvolvimentosustentável. Para atingir um objetivo tão abrangente, a GSPC estabeleceu uma série de tarefas, uma das quaisé assegurar um bom conhecimento da diversidade vegetal para que a mesma possa ser conservada de formaefetiva e utilizada de maneira sustentável. O Brasil possui mais de 46 mil espécies de plantas, algas e fungos,representando um dos países com maior biodiversidade no planeta, sendo um participante chave na GSPC.Para atingir os objetivos da GSPC e possibilitar o acesso à diversidade de plantas, o Brasil se comprometeuem preparar a Lista de Espécies da Flora do Brasil (2008-2015) e a Flora do Brasil 2020 (2016 até o presente).Gerenciar todas as informações relacionadas a esta enorme biodiversidade provou ser uma tarefa extremamentedesafiadora. Neste artigo, sintetizamos a história destes projetos e a abordagem multidisciplinar e colaborativaadotada para desenvolver e gerenciar a inclusão de todo o conhecimento gerado em sistemas de informaçãodigitais. Apresentamos ainda os métodos utilizados, desafios enfrentados, e estratégias adotadas, bem comosintetizamos os avanços até o momento e perspectivas para completar a flora do Brasil em 2020.Palavras-chave: banco de dados, diversidade, hotspots, taxonomia.
