Taxonomic Name Resolution and spellchecking for plant names

The Taxonomic Name Resolution Service (TNRS) is a new web application for checking spelling errors and currently accepted taxonomic plant names. It uses a fuzzy matching algorithm to find misspelled names. Lists of up to 5000 names can be submitted at a time by pasting the names into an online form. The website is here: Taxonomic Name Resolution Service
