For each name based on or applied to southern African grasses the following data is recorded: name, author, place and date of publication, basionym, cross-reference to other genera, and type specimens. The data is entered into a computer file for sorting in the following ways: by name alphabetically, by place of publication, by genus or by collector of the type specimen. The lists thus produced are directly useful for taxonomic study, and will also be the basis for efforts by staff of the Botanical Research Institute, Pretoria, to acquire copies of all original descriptions and photographs of all type specimens. The methods for compiling the Register worked out for Poaceae can be applied to registers of names in other plant families.
