The product is from Farm Island Botanical Software. It has easy to use
input screens for entering your collection data. The database

Each entry includes the full scientific name including authorities. Many
entries also include a common name. The plant names on your labels will
always be correctly spelled and correctly italicized and formatted
according to accepted botanical practice. Label headers and footers can be
tailored to reflect the project and/or institution under whose auspices the

The product uses Microsoft Access as the database and uses Microsoft Word
for Windows to format and print the labels. Price is $149.00.
