Purpose[edit] The IAPT's primary purpose is the promotion and understanding of biodiversity—the discovery, naming, classification, and systematics of plants—for both living and fossil plants. Additionally, it promotes the study and conservation of plant biodiversity, and works to raise awareness of the general public to this issue. The organization also facilitates international cooperation among botanists working in the fields of plant systematics, taxonomy, and nomenclature. This is accomplished in part through sponsorship of meetings and publication of resources, such as reference publications and journals. “ IAPT was founded in 1950 as a not-for-profit organisation for the purposes of publication of a periodical (Taxon) dealing with activities of the association and with objects of general importance for plant taxonomy, the publication of books and indices of utility for plant taxonomists (Regnum Vegetabile), the establishment and maintenance of committees for specific taxonomic and nomenclatural purposes, and the organization of international symposia on problems of plant systematics.[2] ” The IAPT also seeks to achieve uniformity and stability in plant names. It accomplishes this through the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants, previously known as the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature, and through the oversight of the International Bureau for Plant Taxonomy and Nomenclature.

Publications and online resources[edit] Taxon[edit] Taxon[3] is the bi-monthly journal of the IAPT. The journal, which was initiated in 1951, publishes original papers and reviews dealing with systematic botany in the broadest sense. Preference is given to integrative papers combining the results of modern analysis with their consequences for classification. Taxon also contains matters related to botanical nomenclature, and is the medium for the publication of both proposals to conserve or reject names[4] and proposals to amend the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (ICN). Publication of such matters in Taxon satisfies the required submission to the General Committee. The journal also contains sections devoted to the International Organisation of Plant Biosystematics, reviews and notices of books and other publications, and news in the world of plant systematics. Although the journal is "devoted to systematic and evolutionary biology with emphasis on botany",[5] it has been in the past criticized for focusing overly on nomenclature and less on the principles and advancements made in the field of plant systematics.[6] Regnum Vegetabile[edit] Regnum Vegetabile[7] is a published series of books on topics of interest to plant taxonomists. Many of the volumes are literature surveys or monographs in the area of plant systematics. There are several volumes of general use: International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (Vol. 154, 2012) The ICN is a set of rules and recommendations dealing with the formal names that are given to plants. The current edition is known as the "Melbourne Code", as it was drafted in 2011 at the Seventeenth International Botanical Congress in Melbourne, Australia. International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants, 8th edition (Vol. 151, 2010) Companion to the ICN, this volume sets forth rules regarding the names of plant cultivars. Index Nominum Genericorum (Vols. 100-102 & 113) An index of all published generic names covered by the ICN, including the place of publication and information about the type species. The index is prepared in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution. An electronic version is available online. Index Herbariorum, the first six editions (Vol. 15, 31, 86, 92, 93, 106, 109, 114, 117, 120) A directory and guide to the herbaria of the world, including contact information, abbreviation codes, and important collections located in each herbarium. Index Herbariorum is now an online database, managed by The New York Botanical Garden, and available for on-line searching. International Directory of Botanical Gardens (Updated as Vol. 95, 1977) A directory to botanical gardens and arboreta around the world. The series includes many additional volumes of interest to specialists in specific subdisciplines of botany, in addition to the ones listed above. Databases[edit] In addition to electronic versions of its print publications, the IAPT maintains the following: "Names in Current Use"[8] - A database of scientific names of extant botanical genera.

Awards[edit] The IAPT established two Engler Medals in honour of Adolf Engler in 1986: the Engler Medal in Gold awarded every six years for outstanding lifetime contributions to plant taxonomy and presented since 1987 at each International Botanical Congress (IBC), and the Engler Medal in Silver (medal sensu lato) awarded from 1987 to 2001 for a monograph or other work in systematic botany and presented from 1990 to 2002 at various meetings, congresses, symposia, etc. In 2002 the latter medal was divided into three awards for outstanding publications in these areas: the Engler Medal in Silver (medal sensu stricto) awarded for monographic or floristic plant systematics; the Stafleu Medal awarded for historical, bibliographic, and/or nomenclatural aspects of plant systematics; and the Stebbins Medal awarded for phylogenetic plant systematics and/or plant evolution. The medals honor Adolf Engler (24 Mar. 1844-10 Oct. 1930), Frans Antonie Stafleu (8 Sep. 1921-16 Dec. 1997), and George Ledyard Stebbins, Jr. (6 Jan. 1906-19 Jan. 2000).[9]
