Flowering Plants of the Kamloops Area  — Paul Handford

This 2019 edition of the photo-guide to the flowering plants of the Kamloops area has a new format. 

Past versions of this guide appeared as a single file, wherein the species were arranged roughly by calendar month of their appearance as flowers.   This suited the then relatively small number of species and my rather sketchy understanding of their flowering seasons, but the species list has grown— to now over 345— and my awareness of flowering seasons has improved, and this suggested it was time for a new format.

The single file had already grown so large as to give a download-time problem, at least for some users, so I had already decided that the 6th edition should be offered in two versions:  a HI-RES File (210 Mb), and a smaller LO-RES File (113 Mb).

The low-res version is still pretty good and would certainly work well on a smart phone, but the larger screens of iPads etc. will benefit from the hi-res.
