The Special Committee on Institutional Votes was established at the XVIII International Botanical Congress (IBC), in Melbourne in 2011, with the mandate to consider the procedure by which institutional votes are allocated and to report to the XIX IBC in Shenzhen in 2017. The Special Committee contacted institutions worldwide and urged them to update their entries in Index Herbariorum and to request institutional votes for the first time or an increase in allocated votes. The Committee sent its recommendations for changes to the list of institutional votes for the Melbourne IBC to the Bureau of Nomenclature, which, in collaboration with the Special Committee, revised the list to produce the new list for the Shenzhen IBC. This new list was sent to the General Committee for final approval, as required by the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants. The General Committee approved the list, which is now presented in this report.
