A New Flora of Oregon.

The Oregon Flora Project (OFP) is developing a flora of the vascular plants of Oregon. In addition to a printed single-volume format, the OFP is presenting the flora digitally in conjunction with extensive data from other facets. Multiple entry keys as well as dichotomous keys will allow identification of the ca. 4,500 taxa found within Oregon. The Oregon Plant Atlas provides interactive mapping of over 540,000 records of plant observations and specimens from 14 herbaria representing government agencies, small colleges, and major collections. The Photo Gallery presents field photos and herbarium specimen images. A synonymized Checklist serves as the framework for all OFP facets. Taxonomic concepts are defined and assigned unique numbers. Synonymy within primary literature and the key references and floras that cover Oregon is cross-referenced to OFP concept numbers. Contributing authors for plant groups are being solicited to assist in the completion of the first modern flora for Oregon in fifty years.
