New Year message

2015 has flown by and a lot of progress has been made with our flora project. Across the 6 websites we now have 12,135 species, 22,928 images and 68,120 records.

We would like to thank our users for the positive feedback and encouragement they give us. Special thanks should also go to our volunteers, Mieke Berckx and Rene Van Lier. They have been a tremendous help and we would like to thank them for their efforts and the continuous support they give to this project.

We would like to wish everyone a happy, prosperous and botanically interesting 2016.
