The Arctic is the only biome with a complete plant species list. However, the list requires maintenance and periodic updates and a new version has to be released if new species are discovered, new names assigned, or classification changes occur. 

In the Arctic, about 2870 vascular plants, 740 mosses, 220 liverwort taxa and 1700 lichens subtypes are recorded (Reynolds et al. 2013). The most current species list (April 2018) contains accepted species names, species unique numerical and letter codes, synonyms, taxonomic groups and PanArctic Flora ID for vascular plants. The import of vegetation-plot observations into Turboveg is possible from countries with disparate floras because of the PASL and its comprehensive list of synonyms.
