On-line local identification guides

We are currently building on-line guides to the wildflowers of North America north of Mexico. If available, use the state or county guides listed below rather than the North American one. Guides to other groups, including trees and lichens, are listed here. To find local guides to your area, go to Study sites and then BELOW the map, select the site nearest to you.

If you have not used our guides before, see help.

If you wish to contribute photographs to these guides or help in another way, please contact us.

Life lists

Album owners build a life list of the species that they have photographed. In 'edit' click 'List all' to see an album's life list. This lists the insects, plants, fungi, vertebrates, and other species. After clicking 'Find', one can restrict these lists by location.


In 'edit' one can map where the photographs in an album were taken by clicking 'Map'.
