The University of Washington Herbarium (WTU) is pleased to announce the
creation of a Web site for accessing its electronic database.  To vist
the site, go to the WTU home page

http://depts.washington.edu/wtu/home.htm

and then follow the link to the database.  Users will also find a mapping
program which displays the county level distribution in Washington State
for each taxon in the database.  Distribution maps are based on specimens
held at WTU.  Label data from 22,000 specimens have been entered to date,
with additional data entry ongoing.  Data entry for the vascular
plant types collection, and the fungal and lichen collections has recently
begun.

The WTU database was created through a collaborative project between
the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the Washington Natural Heritage
Program, and the University of Washington Herbarium.  The database program
was developed at the University of California-Riverstide Herbarium using
FileMaker Pro software.   Questions or comments regarding the database can
be sent to wtu at u.washington.edu.
