“Linnaeus' driving purpose was to bring order out of chaos in the living world." E.O. Wilson.

Keeping track of a few plants can be achieved using a simple spreadsheet. However, with a larger collection, the spreadsheet approach quickly becomes cumbersome. Moreover, if you want to keep accurate records and track the constant changes in your collection and record detailed scientific information about your plant material, even a more advanced plant record system can become unwieldy and frustrating. Several aspects of managing a plant collection are unfortunately complex by nature, such as changing the nomenclature, recording hybrids, tracking propagation, avoiding duplicate data, reorganizing plant beds, etc. IrisBG has not only been designed to be easy and efficient, but the software also provides a number of unique capabilities to deal with the more complex challenges of plant collection management.

Join our workshop to learn how IrisBG can help you to deal with the more difficult challenges of botanical collection management.

This workshop is free to attend however pre-registration is required for space purposes.
