Treatment Progress
Completed Treatments:
Families: 139 of 158
Genera: 684 of 1,126
Taxa: 3,399 of 5,498
Illustrations: 952 of 1,350

The tables below provide a summary of our progress towards the revised Flora. To date, 139 family treatments have been completed, at least as a near-final draft of the text, and are in various stages of editing and image placement. These completed treatments cover 684 genera and 3,399 terminal taxa (61.8% of the total # of taxa), representing about 503 pages of revised content. The treatments for 13 families are in progress, covering an additional 432 genera and 2,058 terminal taxa. New illustrations have been completed for 952 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.
