The Flora of North Dakota: state of the project.

The second major version of the North Dakota electronic checklist (both as Web service on and as downloadable electronic book on has been released in February 2014. This version accommodates results of 2013 collection season and subsequent complete restructuring of MISU, Minot State University herbarium collection. Several important data sources (like BISON) and numerous images were added, multiple entries were corrected. The current count for the flora of North Dakota is 1,727 species (1,649 in previous version). The electronic book contains 3,338 plant photographs (2,700 in previous version). Both checklist and book are the products of interaction between computer scripts and multiple flat databases; this system ("semi-static" Web service) could be used for the variety of aplications. For example, it was used to check and enhance the second edition of P. Kannowski "Wildflowers and Grasses of North Dakota" book.
