Checklist of the Panarctic Flora (PAF) 

An information-rich taxonomic resource for *all* vascular plants known from the world's Arctic regions.

Editor-in-Chief: Reidar Elven

"The Panarctic Flora Checklist of vascular plants aims to include, to name and to evaluate taxonomically all taxa at ranks of family, genus, species, subspecies, and some varieties and established hybrids, that occur regularly within the Arctic as defined by the Checklist and also to include in two appendices the ones reported, but not accepted, for the Arctic and at least a majority of those that have been found in the Arctic only as casuals."
