Willing contributions to Flora Hellenica

Dr. Rita Willing & Dr. Eckhard Willing are well-known to many workers on the flora of Greece for the enormous herbarium collections they have brought together since 1990 (in early 2012 totalling to more than 200 000 numbers) and which are preserved and available for research at the Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem.
Since 2003 Rita and Eckhard Willing also have compiled annual reports of their collecting activities under the punning title "A Willing Contribution to Flora Hellenica". These reports provide itineraries, precise, georeferenced collecting data for all localities visited and a list of all species collected with their corresponding collections. The carefully compiled data can immediately be used for generating dot distribution maps of taxa, as the authors exemplarily demonstrate in their reports. Hardcopy prints of these reports were privately distributed by the authors only to some workers on the Flora Hellenica project so far.

To make their valuable data available to a wider public, it has been decided to publish Rita and Eckhard Willing's reports online through BGBM Press. The content has not been altered for the electronic publication and the Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem as publisher reserves the right not to be responsible for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided.

The information provided is based on material identified and named by the authors. As the entire collections are preserved in the Herbarium of the Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem, all determinations can be easily reassessed.
