The Arctic Flora of Canada and Alaska project aims to produce a new flora for all vascular plants in the Arctic ecozone in Canada and northern Alaska. We are using this Scratchpad website to move the Flora beyond traditional standards, and to produce a treatment that is digital and interactive, taking full advantage of current (and future) web and database technologies. The Arctic Flora will eventually serve as the reference for anybody who requires accurate and up-to-date information on Arctic plant species, needs or wants to identify Arctic plants in the field or herbarium, or wants to know a little bit more about the amazing plant biodiversity in one of North America's most climate-threatened ecosystems. This site will be updated with Flora content on an ongoing basis.
