Significant update of the checklist!

Flora of North Dakota plant checklist is updated to the second version!

Several new plant species, many more new photos, but most important is much cleaner database. This was done with a great help from Biota of North America Program (BONAP).

Enjoy! http://ashipunov.info/shipunov/fnddb/index.htm

New update

With the successful end of 2015 field season (Sioux county, Adams county and the Northwestern North Dakota), the online database and PDF book were updated today! Four new species added to the state flora. Species lists for the Adams and Sioux counties were expanded by 53 and 42 species, respectively.

New update

Online database and PDF book were updated today. This update was mostly based on the results of our collection trips to the Pembina Gorge. This is one of biodiversity hotspots of the state. In total, our species list for the Pembina Gorge contains 209 species, and 71 of them are new for the county.

First update of the second version: BISON data added, many thanks to Gerald “Stinger” Guala (ITIS). Most of distribution maps updated, and 27 species added to the list!

I am very glad to announce the release of the second, updated and expanded major version of electronic checklist of North Dakota plants: http://ashipunov.info/shipunov/fnddb/index.htm and “Flora of North Dakota: Illustrated Checklist” electronic book. The latter is available also from the Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/shipunov20140209_flora_of_north_dakota_illustrated_checklist

This version accommodates results of 2013 collection season and subsequent complete restructuring of MISU, Minot State University herbarium collection. Several important data sources and numerous images were added, multiple entries were corrected.

The current count for the flora of North Dakota is 1,727 species (1,649 in previous version). The electronic book contains 3,338 plant photographs (2,700 in previous version).

This checklist is the result of collaborative efforts of many people. I am so grateful for all of you!

First update of full checklist

Today the checklist was updated first time. This was a minor update: USDA list was upgraded, new photographs and common names were added.
