Completed Treatments:
Families: 149 of 158
Genera: 863 of 1,142
Taxa: 4,579 of 5,504
Illustrations: 1,005 of 1,350

The tables below provide a summary of our progress towards the revised Flora. To date, 149 family treatments have been fully completed, at least as a near-final draft of the text, and are in various stages of editing, image placement, or review. These completed treatments cover 863 genera and 4,579 terminal taxa (83.2% of the total # of taxa), representing about 593 pages of revised content. The treatments for 8 families are in progress, covering an additional 278 genera and 924 terminal taxa. New illustrations have been completed for 1,005 taxa.

The first table shows family treatments and keys that have been completed, at least as a near-final draft. Also shown are the number of genera and terminal taxa treated in each family, and the number of new illustrations we need to acquire in order to fully illustrate the keys.

The second table lists family treatments and keys that are in progress, along with the estimated number of genera and terminal taxa in the Flora region.

The third table lists family treatments and keys that are awaiting work, along with the estimated number of genera and terminal taxa in the Flora region.
