What data is included?

Question I'm not clear if your software comes preloaded with some kind of botanical database or if it's empty and ready to enter my own data.  Do you know where I can buy a database of plants with images that I can import?
Answer The Compleat Botanica comes with a sample database of wild and cultivated plants containing approximately 5000 entries.  This is an excellent starting point for building your own collection of data and pictures; nevertheless, the world's collection of plant-related data is vast and personal interests are varied.  The best use for The Compleat Botanica is for researching, organizing, and educating yourself using the tools provided with the software.

For ideas about where to obtain public domain data and pictures relating to your area of interest, refer to the page Research groups and plant databases.
