Completed Treatments:
Families: 131 of 162
Genera: 629 of 1,128
Taxa: 3,099 of 5,372

The tables below provide a summary of our progress towards the revised Flora. To date, 131 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 629 genera and 3,099 terminal taxa (57.7% of the total # of taxa), representing about 460 pages of revised content. The treatments for 14 families are in progress, covering an additional 239 genera and 1,169 terminal taxa. New illustrations have been completed for 820 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.
