Flora of Ontario

The following key is derived from the Flora of North America, based on data scraped from the website using a Python program I am writing. It’s not yet complete, but hopefully I’ll have most of the Cyperaceae covered before the spring. Check back for updates!

UPDATE: March 18, 2013

The key now contains all the Ontario Carex. In theory, it is now complete, except for Cyperus. Cyperus isn’t online, so it will have to be added by hand. All the rest of the sedges are there now. The next step will be checking for translation errors, and rationalizing the keys.

UPDATE: August 13, 2016

I added the /Cyperus/ key by hand, and corrected ca. 25 species that didn’t get imported properly from the FNA webpages.
