Index Holmiensis is a world-covering index to distribution maps of vascular plants that was founded in 1969 by Hans Tralau at the Swedish Museum of Natural History. Scientific publications from all parts of the world are systematically scanned by an international team of specialists. The index gives full bibliographic references to published distribution maps - local, regional or world-wide - of vascular plant taxa from family level and below, but mainly at the species level.

In recent years there has been an enormous increase in the number of published distribution maps.
Vol. 6 (Dicotyledoneae D-F) lists publications containing maps of 10,500 taxa, of which the genus Eucalyptus is the largest one with 679 mapped taxa. In this genus more than 260 species were mapped for the first time.
Vol. 7 ( Dicotyledoneae G-J) lists publications containing maps of 12,100 taxa of which more than 450 taxa have been mapped for the first time.
Vol. 8 (Dicotyledoneae K-M) lists publications containing maps of 13,181 taxa of which 635 taxa have been mapped for the first time during the last few years.
Vol. 9 (Dicotyledoneae N-P) lists publications containing maps of 17,822 taxa of which 667 taxa have been mapped for the first time during the last few years.
