What happened to the NY Flora Atlas?

– Posted in: Native/Invasive

Does anyone know what happened to the NY Flora Atlas? I can get a cached image of the site on Google, but my browser tells me the server can’t be found. Did the organization go under? Did they lose funding for the website? It seemed like such a worthy project, mapping native populations of various plants. Every state should have such a website for both natives and invasives. Does your state have such a website, either government sponsored or state-sponsored?

What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.

Another site you may like is the NY Heritage site. TNC and DEC have involvement

sewobsessed–the link you gave was the link I had in my bookmarks and the first one I tried. When it said “Server not found,” that’s when I tried googling it. They must have been doing some kind of system maintenance, because it certainly works now. Thanks for taking the time to let me know.
