  Re: [Aroid-l] What happened to CATE-Araceae site?

Dear Tom,

Thank you for your answer, I hope the key will one day be open-source, to make it easier for people like me to identify or describe species.

I still have the Anthurium seeds for you, please email me so I can send them to you. They seem to germinate easily but not all berries are fertile. The mucus around the seed seems to extra sticky when comparing to other Anthuriums.

Kind regards,

Nils

Dear Nils:

I can answer this question. When Kew stopped supporting the CATE site originally, specifically the Lucid Keys, I adopted the keys and have been adding species to those keys for many years so that for example we have added about a thousand species to the Anthurium key. So the existing CATE key would no longer be reliable at all. The problem is that most of the species are not yet published so the key has not yet been published.

Dear Anna,

=C2=A0

Are the Lucid keys accessible online in any way? Many of the new world aroids here in botanical gardens in thd Netherlands are mis- or unlabeled.

Dear Sid and all,

=C2=A0

This site has recently gone down, and we are just looking into what the problem is. In the meantime, you can access it here:=C2=A0http://araceae-e--monocot-org.scratchpads.eu/

=C2=A0

Unfortunately the eMonocot site which held the keys went a few years ago, some of the data from that site (minus the keys and some other stuff) is now on=C2=A0http://powo.science.kew.org/

But the site you first mention has a much richer data and we hope to keep it going in some form.

=C2=A0

I hope this helps, and it is always good to hear that it is still used. It helps the case to keep it going, so many thanks!

=C2=A0

All the best,

Anna

As one of the data inputers, problems started arising when the UK Govt reduced funding to Kew. I stopped working at that point and do not know what has happened since. A lot of hours went into the project.

Dear Sid:=C2

The CATE site was completely abandoned by KEW and I am uncertain why. I think that it may have been closed for security reasons but I have also heard that it was a difficult site to maintain. I remember Anna Haigh telling me that they were intending to come up with another format and she gave a talk about this in the Monocots Conference in New York. For me the greatest loss was that the CATE site was also where they housed the Lucid keys to both Anthurium and Philodendron. I hope eventually to be able to come up with a similar interactive website, either through MO or the IAS website to make those keys, and others that I have developed, available to the public.
