WNPS Submissions Checklist

WNPS Content Publication Permissions Release


For plants whose ranges include California, follow the nomenclature of The Jepson Manual (Hickman 1993), since many species names in Flora of the Pacific Northwest (Hitchcock and Cronquist 1973) and Vascular Plants of the Pacific Northwest (Hitchcock et.al., 1955-69) have changed. For species not found in The Jepson Manual, follow the National Plants Database, available on the Web at http://plants.usda.gov/ or Flora of North America.

A common name, on first use, should be followed by the botanical name in parentheses. Please provide the Hitchcock synonym for species whose names have changed.

Illustrations and photos
Send as an attached jpg or tif file, with reference in the text where the photo or illustration should appear. Do not embed or paste photos or illustrations in your Word files. Medium resolution (at least 300 dpi at the size they are used) photos will reproduce better. Any photo submitted at 72 dpi will not be included. Be sure to obtain permission from the photographer, and credit the photographer. Douglasia has standing permission to use, with credit, illustrations from Hitchcock and The Jepson Manual. Contributors are responsible for obtaining permission for illustrations from sources other than Hitchcock and The Jepson Manual.

Email material to: douglasia@wnps.org
