Re: new format for books

For IDing a plant Armitage's Interactive cd might be pretty good, because he
offers ID ability through a selection of keys.
I have 2 copies of botanica on CD - one each at home and work. Comes in
handy.  The new Flora just released by Timber has a CD.  I asked them but
they don't know what's on it.  They just assume it's like Botanica.
