The Flora of the Guianas is a long term project dedicated to the taxonomic treatment of all plant species occurring within the borders of French Guiana, Suriname and Guyana. I have been making efforts to disclose its content in a free and open platform.
The ultimate goal is to change the Flora workflow in a system that will deliver species descriptions and related data freely available on the web for:
- tools for data representation and extraction
- fast publication time
- content updates through peer-review (for instance the Encyclopedia of Life)
