The Arctic Flora of Canada and Alaska project .

The Arctic Flora of Canada and Alaska project aims to produce a new flora for all vascular plants in the Arctic ecozone in Canada and northern Alaska. The Arctic Flora research team includes botanists from Canada, Norway, and the United States, led by the project secretariat at the Canadian Museum of Nature. We are using a Scratchpad platform to move the Flora beyond traditional standards, and to produce a treatment that is digital and interactive, taking full advantage of current (and future) web and database technologies. The Arctic Flora of Canada and Alaska website (http://arcticplants.myspecies.info) will be updated with content on an ongoing basis. The Flora will eventually serve as the reference for anybody who requires accurate and up-to-date information on Arctic plant species, needs or wants to identify Arctic plants in the field or herbarium, or wants to know more about the amazing plant biodiversity in one of North America's most climate-threatened ecosystems.
