Pladias (Plant Diversity Analysis and Synthesis Centre) is a Centre of Excellence funded by the Czech Science Foundation in 2014–2018. It integrates research capacities dealing with diversity of temperate flora and vegetation from Masaryk University (Brno), Institute of Botany of The Czech Academy of Sciences, and University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice. The main aims of Pladias include the research into species, phylogenetic and functional diversity of current temperate floras, the processes of their evolution, plant community assembly rules and plant invasions. The database of critically revised data on Czech flora and vegetation, available at this web portal, has been created as an infrastructure to support this research.
Taxon concepts and nomenclature largely follow Danihelka J., Chrtek J. Jr. & Kaplan Z. (2012): Checklist of vascular plants of the Czech Republic. – Preslia 84: 647–811. The names of newly recorded and some other taxa follow the submitted manuscript of the second volume of Key to the Flora of the Czech Republic (Kaplan et al. 2018).
