This site merges the book A Guide to Field Guides: Identifying the Natural History of North America by Diane Schmidt, Biology Librarian at the University of Illinois, and its companion Web site International Field Guides. The field guides are classified by type of organism and region covered. General guides which cover multiple groups of organism are listed in separate sections, Flora and Fauna for ecosystem-wide guides including both plants and animals, and Plants or Animals for guides which include groups of organisms from more than one category or which do not belong in another classification.

First North Dakota flora checklist since 1963. The list is based mainly on three herbarium databases (many thanks to Shawn DeKeyser and Kathryn Yurkonis!) and also USDA PLANTS database. The last was especially useful as a source of synonymy and common names. Please note that cultivated and wild plants are not yet well separated. Nevertheless, if we estimate that we have ~ 150 cultivated plant species, state flora is still much more diverse that was previously thought — approximately 1800 species.

Author's note: This project began when I was trying to find out more about my Grandfather as part of my genealogical research. I assumed that as he was a famous explorer there would be loads of information about him on the internet, but there was practically nothing. I was given a typed manuscript written by my Great Aunt Winifred, herself a celebrated Speech Therapist, as well as most of Frank's published books, and Charles Lyte's biography, and from these I have created this and previous versions of this website.
