ready Plant occurrence and status scheme


General Information
The Plant Occurrence and Status Scheme (POSS) has been developed to provide standard terms for recording the occurrence of a plant taxon for a specific location. As with all standards, POSS aims to provide both a clear, unambiguous framework for information management, and at the same time provides a mechanism for information exchange.While this standard is still in use, it is no longer actively maintained (and is labelled as prior on the TDWG website).
