Have Wikitree power your website

 

Wikitree powers a new kind of wiki website

Wikitree is server software developed by [Aden Earth Inc.], the organization behind the creation of The Plant Encyclopedia. Wikitree offers a highly organized and beautiful wiki. It has been specifically built to create a very structured yet completely flexible, easy to edit, wiki website.  It allows even non-computer savvy users to contribute.  A Wikitree website actually organizes itself and categorizes it’s own entries, as it’s used by it’s contributors, all into beautifully styled pages. Have you ever seen a wiki that looks this good? 
A Wikitree site is a fast, efficient, easy place for reference and a place to categorize information correctly. Unlike Wikipedia and other more comprehensive wiki sites, you’ll see that a Wikitree website’s pages are more restricted in content and therefore store, and serve information in highly specialized ways. This “Tree” of connected pages, branching out, was actually modeled after the “tree of life” structure behind the scientific classification of plants and is specially suited to any website that needs to keep it’s pages organized as “branches from the trunk” as it scales to a large user-base. A WIkitree site can have millions of pages, created quickly, all organized and open-authored. A Wikitree site will never have an orphaned or disconnected page!  The various levels of permissions make Wikitree suited to public authoring, or a private restricted user base such a collaborative company intranet.

  • Clean Automated Structure. A Wikitree site structures and builds itself in an organized architecture as users contribute content.

This month, The Plant Encyclopedia will have listed 300,000 plants.

That’s all plant species on Earth with names accepted by botany globally.

03.11.2011– Currently The Plant Encyclopedia is in beta testing phase, and lists over 25,000 plants.

Within the month of March 2011 300,000 more plant pages will be ‘seeded’ by the organization Aden Earth. This will help speed the public authoring process and upon launch of these pages, The Plant Encyclopedia will immediately be the most comprehensive global plant information resource ever made available to the public.

The long-term goal is to serve a plant page for 1.25 million plant species. This will cover all plant species discovered on Earth. These 1.25 million pages will be presented in a friendly, mobile resource that’s faster and easier to use than a gardening book.
