"E.J.  says . . ."

E.J. knows from years of experience that no two restoration projects are the same.  Careful field studies and local interviews always make the difference.  "Even though each project is unique, the process we follow is always similar.  That's why we like the organizing capabilities of the software -- it just makes everything easier."
Did you know?

Q:  What can I do with the multiple selection feature?

A:  The delete, copy, export, publish, print, and abstract commands all work differently when you've selected more than one specimen.  This time saver makes it really convenient to do your work.  See the full story.

 Frequently Asked Questions

Tips . . .

  Here's a step-by-step procedure for creating a new filter.

A:  Filters allow you to see a partial listing of the specimen in your collection. This is useful when you have a large collection; but even if you have a small collection filters are still useful for choosing which columns to show in the list.

In this example we'll create a filter to show all evergreen shrubs and trees suitable for planting in climates with annual average winter lows of -10 degrees Fahrenheit.  See the full story.
