E-Flora Updates July 2018

Our listings for vascular plants have now been updated based on 2018 British Columbia Conservation Data Centre changes to the BC flora.  Updates include nomenclatural changes, status information and database updates for the herbaria databases used in our mapping. Work is now ongoing to incorporate 2017 updates.

Additionally, our map presentation have been updated based on a new edition of the mapping software.  This has improved the legends on the full-size interactive maps and removed some glitches in the mapping.

Next up will be the updating of Frank Lomer's list of incoming/non-established vascular plants for BC.  Frank tracks populations of species not yet established in the province to determine persistance and abundance, often leading to inclusion in the official list of provincial vascular flora.
