Canada's Plant Hardiness Site
Data Entry - Details
Our aim is to go beyond a single general map and develop potential range maps for individual species of trees, shrubs and perennial flowers. Our approach is to develop a climatic profile for each plant using new continent-wide climate models. These climatic profiles will be mapped giving an indication of the possible range of each species.
To do this we need participation from experts and the public all over Canada, and ideally the United States as well. Contributors need to identify what plants, from a comprehensive list, survive at their location. Once enough data are entered to develop a climatic profile the range maps will be generated. These range maps will be continually updated as more data are submitted.
Your contributions will be visible on interactive web maps and will help define the climatic and geographic limits of plants. If you want to help by entering data, please
