eFloras: New directions for online floras exemplified by the Flora of China Project
Abstract:Online floras provide research botanists with the opportunity to work on floristic treatments dynamically, and enable users to browse and search these treatments. A web-based program called eFloras (URL: http://www.efloras.org/) was developed to enable access to online "electronic" floras. Through a web interface to the data, users can browse online floristic treatments by volume, family, and genus, and can search by name, distributional data, and text. With the use of web forms, editors and authors with permissions can correct and update the data.
