Flore de Suisse

The last editions of the most commonly used Floras in Switzerland dating from the 1980s and 1990s, it becomes increasingly necessary to develop new and fully updated products (Floras in digital or printed form). The present program aims to centralize all available information on the vascular plants of the Swiss flora in a database that allows the creation of new Floras in various forms. This work is realized in close collaboration with various partners in Switzerland, bringing together a wide range of specific expertise: the publisher Haupt Verlag AG (www.haupt.ch) provides access to the contents of its illustrated reference Flora Helvetica in accordance with its authors; the National data and information centre on Swiss Flora Info Flora (www.infoflora.ch) brings its expertise in floristics and its distribution maps; the Institute of Systematic Botany, University of Zurich, contributes to the projects by its knowledge of modern taxonomic systems. Further collaborations with institutions and Swiss and international experts provide additional information on specific topics.

This project aims to develop an electronic an illustrated Flora of the vascular plants of Switzerland, through a synthesis and updating of the historical and currently available information. The combination of a multitude of data published in various kinds of works (Floras, atlases) greatly increases the usefulness of such an electronic tool compared to traditional printed Floras. Field work is conducted in certain cases requiring verification or additional information. The Flora will be available for mobile devices like smartphone or tablets. Publication is planned for spring 2012 and will initially be based on the new edition of the printed work published in the same period.
