New Revision of Jepson eFlora

from the Jepson Herbarium

Revision 9 of the Jepson eFlora is now online! This revision involves treatments that have changed taxonomically since Revision 8 of the Jepson eFlora (2020).

Highlights include (1) a major revision of Boraginaceae resulting in five segregate families and many newly recognized genera, (2) the addition of five taxa newly described, added, as native (three in the Boraginaceae and two in the Polemoniaceae), and (3) additional changes in the Thelypteridaceae and Polemoniaceae. Visit the Jepson eFlora revision page for more details.

To learn more about the Boraginaceae revision, there is still time to sign up for the virtual workshop  Changes in the Boraginaceae: New families, new genera and new species that will be held on February 26th. More details are here: https://ucjeps.berkeley.edu/workshops/
