NEW - Online NT Flora List
It has been a slow gestation, but at last an online version of the NT plants list and related materials, with the following email in the inbox today.....
The Northern Territory Herbarium of the Flora and Fauna Division of the NT Land Resource Management Department is pleased to announce the first release of FloraNT (Northern Territory flora online) http://eflora.nt.gov.au.
The main features are:
· Checklists of:
o NT Plants;
o NT Threatened species; and
o Introduced naturalised species.
· Searching of flora information by any combination of spatial attributes, plant name or plant characteristics including conservation status to produce a species list meeting the search criteria.
· Browsing by plant name to access fact sheets and other information.
· Attached to names in the above lists:
o fact sheets including distribution map, illustrations, photos of each plant, conservation status, distribution, flowering times and other information; and
o pdfs of descriptions and keys.
· Searching of spatial data by any combination of spatial attributes, plant name or plant characteristics including conservation status to produce point data extracts meeting the search criteria.
Please note there are about 3300 images awaiting bulk upload.
For anyone else interested in the NT flora, this should be a very useful resource and reference Let's hope it is kept up to date, even if only several times a year.
