Flora of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago published

The Flora of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago is a comprehensive guide to the 349 ferns and flowering plants of the Canadian Arctic islands recently published on CD-ROM by the Canadian Museum of Nature and NRC Research Press. Each species is provided with a detailed morphological description, a distribution map, notes on taxonomy, distribution, ecology and indigenous knowledge.

The text is complemented by an extensive bibliography. Characters useful for identification are defined and illustrated. More than 3,000 colour photographs and line drawings illustrate the habitat, habit, flowers and distinguishing characters of each species. The DELTA (Description Language for Taxonomy) format allows for interactive identification
