New on E-Flora BC: the ability to search by family name

While we continue to add species information to E-Flora on a regular basis, we also continue to work on fine-tuning the atlas.  This week, our programmer has brought online the ability to search for a species by family name--on your laptop, desktop, or on your smart phone. Just enter the family name in the search box.  This is a very useful feature, especially if you are out in the field and come across a species that you don't recognize   If you can recognize the family it is in, then search by family name and call up all species in that family. Browse through the thumbnails until you find your plant.
