This website is dedicated to the study of members of the Ericaceae that occur in the tropical Americas, more specifically within the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn (23°30'N-23°30'S).
The Boletineae, a suborder of Boletales, is treated here to include the mushroom genera assigned to the Boletaceae by Singer (1986). Much of the recent generic recognition is derived from phylogenetic inferences published by Nuhn et al. (2013) and Wu et al. (2014). Specimens housed in herbarium NY can be accessed or searched.
Information and the images that have been collected about Elaphoglossum.
An intensive inventory of the macrofungi (i.e., mushrooms, boletes, puffballs, bracket fungi, etc.) of Costa Rica began to document the diversity of Neotropical macrofungi to further our understanding of their biology and to include them in forest management plans and conservation activities. The information has added significantly to our knowledge of Neotropical mycology and is available for subsequent studies on the ecology and systematics of macrofungi by the collaborators and the rest of the mycological community.
This project aims to document all the vascular plants of a region that is key to the understanding of plant biodiversity and plant conservation in the Neotropics. We will also assess which plant species are most important for conservation.

This site provides data on taxa of the macrofungal, largely ectomycorrhizal genus Amanita, the saprobic genus Limacella, and the family Amanitaceae (Agaricales, Basidiomycetes, Fungi) of which these genera are the only known members.
Web access to a botanical database developed from The World List of Cycads, with a page for every known cycad.
A Site with Information on the Biodiversity of Melastomataceae.
The PO is organized in a complex hierarchical structure in which botanical concepts are described by their precise logical definitions and their relationships to one another.
