The most recent version of the Montana Plant Life DVD is now available, featuring 2,063 species in 176 plant families, with over 9,000 images.
Available for $24.95
The web site will still have 250 species, and those hosted there can be compared side by side to the following lists:

Species counts for some plant categories on the DVD:

  • 2,063 total species
  • 1,780 species of Seed Plants, in 107 families
  • 283 species of Spore Plants, in 69 families
  • 1,774 Native Plants, and 293 Introduced Plants
  • 1,369 Herbs, 156 Shrubs, 40 Trees, and 226 Grass-like plants
  • 564 Edible Plants, with details described
  • 653 Medicinal Plants, with properties described
  • 170 Poisonous Plants, with properties described
  • 114 Weeds, including 24 Noxious Weeds

Other features on the DVD in addition to the web site:

  • Trees, Grasses and Sedges added as categories of Seed Plants
  • Ferns and Allies, Mosses, Lichens and Liverworts added as categories of Spore Plants
  • Index for 273 Sensitive Plants
  • Indexes added for Habitats: Ditches, Flood Plains, In Water, Thickets, Ravines, and On Cliffs and Rocks
  • Expanded indexes for Edible Flowers, Stems, Bark, Sap, Spores, and Lichens
  • Expanded indexes for Poisonous Flowers, Stems, and Lichens

A main part of the plant pictures are closeups showing details for positive identification. The DVD has the same capabilities for search and identification as the web site. All the scripts run from the DVD itself by just inserting it, and no installation is necessary.

A major advantage of using the DVD is that it can be used in the field on a laptop. And, of course, the DVD contains over 1,800 more species than the web site.

Satisfaction is guaranteed, if you can view the web site and are using Windows 98 or higher, the DVD should run fine as well. The basic system requirements are listed below, however, if there would be a compatibility problem, the DVD can be returned within 10 days if in new condition, and a full refund except shipping/handling will be issued promptly.

The DVD, as pictured above, will be shipped with first class mail in a DVD sleeve and rigid mailer. During plant growth season it may take up to about a week before products are shipped out because of high demand and work in the field.
