Yes we are aware of our terrible spelling problems. We are slowly correcting spelling and grammar mistakes. Please continue to let us know when we have made a mistake. Nothing is to "nit picky".
Many links and Images are still addressed to content which does not yet exist. So they may appear broken or missing for a while longer yet.
Enjoy what there is and please send feedback CYSIP@dempstercountry.ca
Due to the changing nature of Botany, this site will always be a work in progress.
Pages will continue to be added as they are created and content will be updated. All new additions will be posted here in the "What is New" box on the Home Page.
The "Species Index Pages", "Glossary" and "References" pages are all working. Content will be added to these pasges as the site expands and these additions will not be noted in the What's New Box as it can be asumed that when a new page is created or a new term used, it will be listed.
As of right now the content is sparse, limited to Pteridophyta (spore-bearing vascular plants) Division and Liliaceae (the Lily Family).
Please brouse what content there is on the site. If there are any comments or constructive critisisms please let us know (the sooner the better before I post too much). Please send emails to: CYSIP@dempstercountry.ca
