These Convolvulaceae specimen data [6,960 collections; 8,867 individual specimens] from Brazil were compiled by George Staples between 2002-2015 as part of global studies of the family. The Brazil specimen records are extracted from a database consisting [in December 2015] of more than 9,100 collection records for American Convolvulaceae. These data were compiled primarily from specimens in European, UK, and USA herbaria, and secondarily from collections in Brazilian and other Latin American herbaria.
