Where do you get your plant coverage maps
We're fortunate enough to partner with the highly-talented researchers at BONAP -
(Biota of North America Program) for these images. Without their contribution, the Researchers Allergy and Botany Library at PollenLibrary.com would not be possible.
The Biota of North America Program (BONAP) at the Chapel Hill, North Carolina, was founded in 1969 by Dr. John Kartesz. The program's goal is to develop a unified digital system for assessing the North American biota. BONAP's database now includes assessment for all vascular plants and vertebrate animals (native, naturalized, and adventive) of North America, north of Mexico, and maintains the most current taxonomy, nomenclature, and biogeographic data for all members of the biota.
