The Consortium of Pacific Northwest Herbaria aims to consolidate and digitize all existing herbaria records in order to "provide the scientific community, land management agencies, conservation organizations, and the interested public with a single online access point to the wealth of existing information about the Pacific Northwest Flora." The result is an extensive, searchable online database that will be of interest for flora identification. This website, hosted by the Burke Museum at the University of Washington, allows visitors to explore data in a variety of ways. In the Specimen Databases, visitors can search for flora by scientific name, region, or elevation. Visitors can also chose to search through all databases collected by the Consortium, or to search within a single database participating in this partnership. Alternatively, visitors can search by region or county within the Pacific Northwest, download the complete data set, or download a data set especially for use on a mobile phone. This website also contains information about how specimens are digitized - providing insight into this important project.
