The taxonomic checklist has a checkbox which indicates whether a specimen
of the given type exists in your collection. When a taxonomic name
is checked, all higher ranking names are also checked. Checked items are
also highlighted using a bold face font in the taxonomic hierarchy. This
feature allows you to easily see the distribution and concentration of
your specimen in relation to the whole plant kingdom.
This checkbox is
automatically updated as you add new specimen to your collection.
