Rosie likes to prepare home-made soaps with scents from her garden. "I just
let my nose lead me through every new garden I encounter." With The
Compleat Botanica, Rosie is beginning to assemble her knowledge and
experience into a semi-formal journal that she hopes her daughter will
someday discover and appreciate.
Q: What does the "specimen available" checkbox mean?
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.

Q: I'm interested in the concept, but the word "compleat"
suggests a British origin. Please clarify if the software is
applicable to my plant zone.
In fact, the software is an American product.
The word "Compleat" is not simply an odd spelling for
the word "Complete". "Compleat" is an
adjective for describing a "highly developed or wide-ranging
skill or proficiency" (The American Heritage
Dictionary). This is a quality that describes both the
software and the people who use it.
Yes, the software is applicable to all plant hardiness zones.

Q: How do I publish to the Web?
A: The publish tool combines the best parts of the report generator, the export
facility, and the print tags feature into one powerful tool which allows you to
create HTML documents. If you're interested in placing your specimen data
on a Web site, whether for personal, professional, or commercial purposes,
you'll find the publish tool is a fast and efficient way to do it. If
you're preparing a printed manual or a book of your plant data, the publish tool
is a great way to produce a printed version of your collection. If you're
looking for alternative ways to print specimen tags, the publish tool has
pre-defined templates for plant stakes, arboretum tags, and nursery placards.
The publishing tool uses a multi-step wizard to guide you through the process
of creating Web pages, indexes, table of contents, labels, and much more.
