PhycoBank,, is the registration system for nomenclatural acts (new names, new combinations and types) of algae. Phycobank is developed by diatom experts at the Botanic Garden and the Botanical Museum in Berlin, Germany. PhycoBank will support the registration of new names and nomenclatural acts submitted directly by nomenclatural authors or automatically via cooperating publishers. Each nomenclatural act will have a unique PhycoBank registration number automatically linking to the corresponding metadata in human- and machine-readable formats. Phycobank provides search functions for taxon names, registration date, type of act, and nomenclatural type. If you are an author of new names, new combinations or new nomenclatural types (including epitypes) of algae, please contact the project staff to get your registration IDs and more information on PhycoBank.
