I want to build some databases with full listings of genus, species and
author names. Specifically I am looking for tab or comma delimited data,
genus-species-author, to load on my PalmPilot. Several years ago
information in this format was downloadable from Tropicos, but I don't
believe this can be done any longer.
Can anyone point the way to such a database?

I use MS Access '97 for building very extensive flat databases with exactly
the datasets you intend to use. I can send you sample sets of of format/data
if you wish.

It's not so simple as you suggest. What do you do with synonyms,
varieties, ssp., etc.
For example, how should I enter this into your comma delimited list?
Arisaema latisectum Blume = A. serratum v. serratum or A. tashiroi Blume
Arisaema aequinoctiale Nakai & F. Maek. = A. undulatifolium Nakai
A complete list is available for Arisaema and Pinellia, but not in comma
I started to insert the commas, but ran into the problems illustrated
above. When it
became obvious there were too many "exceptions", I quit.
A more managable list could be made by omitting all v., f. and ssp. plus
Doesn't your palm pilot have a "find" function? If it does, you don't
need a database
format. The available list will do.

You should try the International Plant Names Index. It is very up to date.

I read your answer to Don. Could you please sent me a sample sets of a
format/data you use at Kew, because I?am working on a new database system at
Rotterdam Zoo. We have bought MS Access 2000 for our new database system
