The Plant DNA C-values Database currently contains data for 8510 plant species. It combines data from the Angiosperm DNA C-values Database (release 8.0, Dec 2012), Gymnosperm DNA C-values Database (release 5.0, Dec. 2012), the Pteridophyte DNA C-values Database (release 5.0, Dec. 2012), the Bryophyte DNA C-values Database (release 3.0, Dec. 2010), together with Algae DNA C-values database (release 1.0, Dec. 2004).
