The Fact Sheet output comprises:
synonyms, regional and overseas distribution, family placement from the current
Census of South Australian Plants
textual information and illustrations from the last (1986) edition of the
Flora of South Australia, which is out of print.
current thumbnail distribution maps based on the existing collections in the
State Herbarium of South Australia.
(Infraspecific taxa are not available at this time.)
You can compile
your own folio of species; perhaps on a regional basis, or relating
to a particular group of plants.
Names in the Flora of South Australia may have been superseded.
For example, Lavatera plebeia is now called Malva preissiana
(as will be confirmed by a synonym query in the Census module).
Non-existent fact sheets for current names will be provided
as resources allow, but by using the
Census query form users can access
fact sheets relevant to a current name through hyperlinks
to their older names or synonyms.
Work on a new,
5th edition of the Flora of South Australia
is currently on the way,
with several chapters already published online. New and up-dated treatments
will be released every 4-6 months. Information from this new edition will be
incorporated into the eFloraSA fact sheets in the near future.
