The information on the families, genera and species that make up Flora Argentina and the so-called "Southern Cone" of South America (Argentina, southern Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay).

Both projects are articulated through the Documenta Florae Australis © (DFA) database, developed for more than 20 years at the Darwinion Institute of Botany, and have printed versions. The Southern Cone Catalog was published in 2008, while the Flora Argentina is in full swing, having published so far, 40% of the plants occurring in that country.
