Flora of the Canary Islands
The list Flora_Canary_Islands at onelist.com, Spain, focuses on ENDEMIC
SPECIES of this archipel (currently approx. 1000 taxa). Furthermore this
list should give the opportunity to exchange seeds/plants from these
Islands of Eternal Spring, situated at some 150km from the Northwest
coast of Marocco (Africa) in the Atlantic Ocean. Many of the endemic
plants on the Canary Islands have their natural distribution limited to
few sites, sometimes limited to onyl a couple of square meters, or a
small mountain range, therefore one of this list's main purposes is the
distribution of cultivated plants/seeds to enthusiasts / professionals
all over the world.

Endangered Plants
The list Endangered_Plants at onelist.com primarily purpose is to faciliate
seed or plant exchange between private or institutional cultivators of
rare and endangered plants in order to diminish wild collections and
hopefully conservate natural populations. To ensure this, subscribers -
when trading - are kindly requested to give all relevant information on
plants involved (i.e. correct scientific name, precise information on
origin, etc.) Topics may also include propagation, cultivation and
conservation methods. This list should also give the opportunity to its
subscribers to discuss problems facing regulations with regards to an
exchange and private/institutional cultivation of plants listed in the
appendices I-III of CITES and how to legally (!) handle these
international laws.
