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 web pages about Costa Rican species are electronic publications that provide basic information on the species of different groups of organisms found in Costa Rica. The scientific information is presented in a simple technical language. The resulting publications include photos and illustrations, information about natural history, conservation and demography, distribution, importance for humankind, taxonomy, and references. Almost all the information is written in Spanish.
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.
The database "Seeds of Brazil" was created primarily to provide data of the gray literature ("gray literature"), ie the scientific literature with difficult access and limited disclosure as per examples: Annals of Congresses and Symposia, Papers, Dissertations and Theses. Currently, 1247 references are registered in "Seeds of Brazil." Perform queries on the bench "Seeds of Brazil."
Open Access, Full-text scans of taxonomic and allied literature in the natural sciences
The goal of this website is to provide in a single location all of the information that we and our collaborators have accumulated on the taxonomy and biology of the Brazil nut family.
This website provides a unique access to the set of over 15,000 images J. Francis Macbride made in Berlin of material collected in Central and South America from 1778 through May 1930.
