  Aroid Database?
From: Don Burns donburns at macconnect.com> on 2000.02.06 at 06:23:42(4054)
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.

Dear Don,

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
