Thanks to Eric for fixing the URL of the Checklist of World Grasses on
the GrassWorld Scratchpad.

The GrassWorld Scratchpad works best under Firefox as opposed to IE..

By "currently accepted " this infers the names that I am following as
reflected by recent taxonomic literature of the grasses.  There will
always be differences of opinion as to which is the correct name
(according to which classification one is following), but I hope I have
picked up most of the recent changes that have been published in
taxonomic journals that I have been able to access. Where there are
other opinions as to different classifications and names, or when I have
missed important taxonomic journals, it is my hope that potential
contributors will apply for contributor status on the GrassWorld
Scratchpad, where there is a Forums section where these alternative
names can be placed for users to discuss.

>From time to time I shall be adding extra information to the GrassWorld
Scratchpad.  These entries will be dated to fix the point in time where
the latest update of a particular category of information was inserted
on the scratchpad. The check-list is the latest category of information
to have been added to GrassWorld and has the addition December 2010 to
the title; the link first placed on Taxacom did have the date and is the
reason for it not working.
