This paper highlights the importance of e-taxonomyrepository specifically eFlora that have been developed across the world. eFlora is an internet based toolthat has reduced our efforts of taxonomic identification and study steps via a consolidated database ofbiodiversity informatics. eFlora aims at developing a structured data of hierarchical plant kingdomclassification through huge published taxonomic and floristic research data of biodiversity. A taxon can beeasily linked with data illustrations in more than one flora with the help of automated data links. Thesefloras are immensely helpful in maintaining a long term digital preservation of taxonomic data. Thepublication of research work of botanists has also become readily available on a single platform of eFlora.Moreover, sharing and inviting contributions from the world community of taxonomists has never beeneasier.
