Background

The objectives of collaborative development of online Flora Information Systems are to make information from Floras and similar works available over the internet and to do this is a manner that is both comparable and consistent. Consistency and standards will enable a predictable and efficient user experience and the ability to create new applications integrating data from diverse sources. It will provide a platform for scholarly research, allowing dynamic comparison of similar information from different sources. By putting the information in the hands of the users, applications will enable online production of Floras tailored to individual preference or breadth and depth of information an taxonomic and regional coverage.
