NOTICE 3: BONAP is nearing completion of the 2015 edition of our online databases. We anticipate that the new edition will be completed by late December, 2015. It will include some 30,000 county-level records unreported previously by BONAP, plus hundreds of taxonomic and nomenclatural modifications. The new edition will include all accepted updates from journal articles and other scientific publications through the first quarter of 2015. We are still accepting recommended changes from the botanical community. For your suggestions to be considered, they need to be received by November 15, 2015. –JTK (10/12/2015)


NOTICE 2: BONAP has revised our North American Plant Atlas (NAPA). We have updated all of our previous maps and added scores of new ones to reflect some fascinating patterns in phytogeography; the majority of which have never been seen. Please take time to review and evaluate all of our new maps –JTK (3/27/2015)


NOTICE 1: BONAP is pleased to present the 2014 edition of our TDC and NAPA web pages. These pages represent reasonably complete, accurate and current assessments of the entire vascular flora of the North American continent, north of Mexico. Through the combined efforts of BONAP’S thousands of contributors and volunteers, we have produced a community-wide, free access product to serve the needs of the botanical community. With clear vision and common goals, the completion of this work demonstrates the ability of the scientific community to summarize, verify, and clarify a subject as vastly complex as the North American vascular flora. Although we make no assertions that every datum is accurate, we are pleased to bring our efforts to this stage of completion, and to make them publically available. We welcome any corrections or suggestions you might have. –JTK (11/17/2014)
