Botanical Databases and Species Lists

Notes and Caveats
The following is a list of online databases and species lists used to research Mucuna.
They are provided here for my easy reference and to enable others to easily find and search for data of their own interests.
I make no reference to the database contents or their validity, but personally have found them all to be very helpful.
