CopperFlora website, 6 years anniversary

Copperflora.org was putted online in April 2012 after 6 months of development. This style with green background is now obsolete and we decided to move into a responsive and an adaptative version. The main objective stays: To promote the unique metallicolous flora and surrounded projects in an unique web platform. We continue working on the improvments of the website. The most important change is the eFlora. Regarding the number of visitors (Thanks !) who look for pictures. Next step is the update of the part "Conservation Strategy" and the integration of the main states of conservation actions by taxa (in the eFlora).

Thanks for surfing!
