***********    Madagascar Web Expanded   **********

The Conspectus of the Vascular Plants of Madagascar Project, an
international, multi-institutional effort involving the Missouri
Botanical Garden (MO), the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle (P), the
Parc Botanique et Zoologique de Tsimbazaza (TAN), and the Centre
National de la Recherche Appliquee au Developpement Rural (TEF), is
pleased to announce the expansion of the Madagascar Web on the World
Wide Web.  The Madagascar Web links specimen-vouchered images with their
corresponding specimen and nomenclatural records in the Madagascar
Conspectus database, a subset of the TROPICOS database at the Missouri
Botanical Garden.  The Madagascar Conspectus database currently holds
over 25,000 nomenclatural records, 2,000 bibliographic records, and
50,000 geo-referenced specimen records.  The newly-expanded Madagascar
Web now encompasses 200 images, representing 75 families (including 6
endemic families), 130 genera, and 180 species.  The Madagascar Web can
be accessed directly at the following URL:
