"Jeffrey  says . . ."

Jeffrey knows that effective wetland management requires field work, policy decisions, and good staff support.  "My staff assistant uses The Compleat Botanica to inventory the plant species known to exist in our mitigation projects.  Together with our part-time biologist they identify and track the invasion of unwanted species."
Did you know?

Q:  Does the botanical name have to be in every specimen list?

A:  No.  As a reasonable first guess, new filters start out with the botanical name as the first column of every filter.  This is entirely optional.

If you choose a different item to replace it, you will have a surprisingly different looking specimen list.  This is because the first item in the filter is always displayed in the prominent top-half of each specimen row.  This position does not scroll left and right with the rest of the list, but stays fixed to the left-hand side of the list. see the full story.

 Frequently Asked Questions

Tips . . .

  How to find plant names.

A:  Looking for a hard to remember name can be frustrating, especially when you're not an expert in botanical names. The software provides several ways to search for names, each useful for different searching problems.

If you know a plant by its common name, use the list of vernacular names.

If you know part or all of the botanical name, you can use either the vernacular name list or the Find facility of the taxonomic checklist.

If you're certain that you have a specimen record for a particular name, you can use the Find facility of the specimen view. See the full story.
