For a general introduction to LPSN, please see the separate introduction page. Below you will find information on how to navigate the LPSN website.

In the new and up-to-date system, pages on individual taxon names can be found via the taxonomy search, which is shown on each page, by the general search or by browsing the hierarchical classification. Taxon names of rarely used categories are listed on a separate page.

Pages for individual taxon names contain links to child taxa, if any, siblings, if any, parent taxa, and synonyms. The notes may also include links to other taxon names of interest.

Additionally, a variety of pages dedicated to special topics are provided. An alphabetic listing of these pages is found here:
