Floristic projects: who does what, with Flora of North America as a case study.

This workshop will be useful to anyone involved in any of the floristic projects currently underway and will provide an opportunity for participants in various projects to compare notes. Flora of North America (FNA) provides a case study. It is a massive collaborative project to produce a Flora of North America north of Mexico in print and electronic forms. Sixteen out of the projected 30 volumes have been published. The project involves more than 900 botanists in North America and elsewhere. Missouri Botanical Garden is an FNA editorial center and also the center for botanical illustration and composition. This workshop will focus on a behind-the-scenes look at how treatments are processed and what authors, regional and taxonomic reviewers, editors, and artists do. Break out sessions will provide time for different groups (e.g. authors, regional reviewers, editors) to discuss problems and solutions. The workshop will include a tour of the composition and illustration facilities and the Missouri Botanical Garden library. It will finish with a reception for everyone interested in the project.
