I agree that botany texts on websites or CDs would be excellent. Plant
science societies, such as the Botanical Society of America and American
Society of Plant Physiologists, would be the logical organizers of such
efforts. Most plant science societies sell publications already, even
online ones. They could provide quality control and credibility.

Some type of grant funding, such as NSF, should be available to pay
experts to write chapters in their field of expertise. Then the plant
science society would hopefully make the textbook website available for
free and market CDs at minimal cost.
