Subject: [Taxacom] new web site - herbarium MU

Dear All:  I am pleased to announce our new web site, complete with a search portal for our data base.  See http://wan1.mbi.muohio.edu/herbariummu/index.html.

While not all are yet georeferenced, complete data are available for nearly 40,000 worldwide specimens of:
all vascular types
all Gymnopserms
Poaceae (98% complete)
all non-North American Solanum
miscellaneous other specimens entered for various reasons

Data can be viewed on-line and downloaded, maps can be generated for our specimens, and images will be available as we begin the process of imaging our specimens.

Please feel free to send me comments and suggestions about how the site can be made more useful to you.

Thanks very much.

M.A. Vincent
