The Umbellifer database was established at Wellesbourne following the first meeting of a European carrot group under the auspices of the ECPGR in Kraków, Poland in 1997 and was updated by the Umbellifer Working Group in 2013. The database includes nine genera including Anethum L. (dill), Apium L. (celery), Carum L. (caraway), Chaerophyllum L. (chervil), Coriandrum L. (coriander), Daucus L. (carrot), Foeniculum Miller (fennel), Pastinaca L. (parsnip), and Petroselinum Hoffm. (parsley). The European Umbellifer DataBase (EUDB) was updated using data from EURISCO and national programmes. The data are available in Microsoft Excel format using the EURISCO Multi-crop Passport Descriptors. The database is maintained by the Warwick GRU. The EUDB2013 contains 11916 accessions representing the 9 major Umbellifer crops and a range of the wild taxa from 63 institutions in 30 countries.
