Great site, already bookmarked for future use. The one thing I REALLY
miss is an export or download option for references in RIS format for
easy importing into Reference Manager or other similar packages.
Please, please, please?


Q: What did the stamen say to the pistil?
A: I like your "style"

Kew Gardens has released an update to our information resource
discovery service called ePIC, the electronic Plant Information
Centre. From the ePIC interface at


you can now search for plant information across 11 databases held
at Kew, and also our web site, in one action. This release adds the
Checklist of Monocotyledons to the set of resources which are
available. For
further information about these resources, look at


The checklist currently provides synonymy and distribution for four
Acoraceae, Araceae, Arecaceae and Orchidaceae, but will eventually
cover all
of the Monocotyledon families. It is also accessible directly from our
website at


Taxacomers are invited to try out the service, and please let us
have your comments by email to epicfeedback at kew.org. Thanks,

Mark Jackson
