The National Vegetation Survey (NVS) Databank is a physical archive and electronic databank containing records of over 94,000 vegetation survey plots - including data from over 19,000 permanent plots. NVS maintains a standard set of species code abbreviations that correspond to standard scientific plant names from the Ngä Tipu o Aotearoa - New Zealand Plants database.

Current conservation status
The conservation status of all known New Zealand vascular plant taxa at the rank of species and below were reassessed in 2017 using the New Zealand Threat Classification System (NZTCS). This report includes a statistical summary and brief notes on changes since 2012 and replaces all previous NZTCS lists for vascular plants. Authors: By Peter J. de Lange, Jeremy R. Rolfe, John W. Barkla, Shannel P. Courtney, Paul D. Champion, Leon R. Perrie, Sarah M. Beadel, Kerry A. Ford, Ilse Breitwieser, Ines Schönberger, Rowan Hindmarsh-Walls, Peter B. Heenan and Kate Ladley.

lastreopsis: Like Lastrea, a fern known to the ancient Greeks; from the greek Lastrea and opsis
In a recent reassessment of the generic position of Lastreopsis Labiak et al. (2015) placed most of the New Zealand species of Lastreopsis within Parapolystichum. Gardner et al. (2017) completed the transfer -confirming in the process the findings of Labiak et al. (2015) that Lastreopsis hispida and L. velutina are still correctly assigned to Lastreopsis.
