The Center for International Forestry Research is a nonprofit, global facility dedicated to advancing human wellbeing, environmental conservation and equity. We conduct research that enables more informed and equitable decision making about the use and management of forests in less-developed countries.
a research and education organization interested in understanding the nature and extent of human interaction with the surface of the earth, and in finding new meanings in the intentional and incidental forms that we individually and collectively create. Neither an environmental group nor an industry affiliated organization, the work of the Center integrates the many approaches to land use—the many perspectives of the landscape—into a single vision that illustrates the common ground in “land use” debates.
The Center for Plant Conservation (CPC) is dedicated solely to preventing the extinction of U.S. native plants. The Center is a network of 39 leading botanic institutions. the Center operates the only coordinated national program of off-site (ex situ) conservation of rare plant material. This conservation collection ensures that material is available for restoration and recovery efforts for these species. CPC also works in research, restoration, technical assistance, education and advocacy through the efforts of the network and the national office.
The task of the GDZ is to record data such as prints, manuscripts and illustrations and to present them. Scientists, teachers and students will find a large amount of scholarly relevant texts in digitized form.

A collection of species names that are worth a second look. Some names are interesting for what they are named after; some are puns; and some show other kinds of wordplay; some have achieved notability through accident of history, and many show the sense of humor of taxonomists. The site is organized around: Rules gives a brief overview of the rules governing biological naming (and, along the way, includes several curious examples). Etymology lists names that are notable for what they are named after. Puns lists names which are unusual for how they sound. Wordplay includes all unusual features of names other than their meaning and pronunciation. Gene Names lists a few of the interesting names which have been given to genes. Misc. includes things which do not fit elsewhere, including other curious biological terms, interesting stories about names, and some creative writing. References includes also links, acknowledgements, and a list of the newest entries.
This list has evolved from Arnold Menke's classic article "Funny or curious zoological names" (BOGUS, Volume -2, 1993 April Fool's Issue; 24-27 [yes, that's volume *negative* 2]), expanded to include some fungi and plants.
