Dear All,

I'm trying to construct a plant database for collectors on our campus
and from the local botanic garden. Purpose? To enable future people in
my position to know where to go to collect plants for practical classes.

My question is : does anyone know of a useful program to contain info on
family, genus, species and field notes? MS Access might be a possibility
but I'm not sure I need anything so complex! What are other people using
who have a similar databases set up? We're not talking a complete flora
here - just a couple of hundred or so species useful in our classes.

Thanks,

Martin Witchard.

P.S. The ability to incorporate a map would be also useful.
