Many thanks to Shirley Denton, Kristen Jacobs, Peg McPherson and Kellie Westervelt for help and encouragement at critical times and for assisting with obtaining financial support.  Without the funding from and logistical support of our sponsors, this website would never have become a reality.  Special thanks to the Elizabeth Ordway Dunn Foundation and the Florida Native Plant Society for making the initial contributions to get the project off the ground.

Shirley Denton, Roger Hammer, Chuck McCartney and Susan Trammell, all renowned naturalists and photographers, have each contributed many of their native plant photographs for use on the site.  Wes Jurgens and Susan Trammell, experienced botanical illustrators, have kindly also donated some of their native plant illustrations for use on this site.  All copyrights remain with the artists.

Much of the basis for this work lies in the Floristic Inventory of South Florida Database (Gann, Bradley & Woodmansee, 1995-2005) and IRC’s book Rare Plants of South Florida: Their History, Conservation, and Restoration (Gann, Bradley & Woodmansee, 2002).  Literally dozens of people and organizations have contributed to these IRC projects.  Thanks also to the dozens of people who sent in evaluations of the trial version of this site.  Many new ideas emerged which we have been able to incorporate - the many words or encouragement were also greatly appreciated.

Finally, thanks to our web team - Option 4 Interactive Solutions, Geobridge, Leif Gann-Matzen and Barbara Shapiro, all of whom worked up to the very last minute.

Happy Planting!
