An electronic monograph of the Brazil nut family.
Convinced that electronically published monographs and floras are far superior to hard copy publication, I am dedicating the rest of my career to producing an electronic monograph of the Brazil nut family. Electronic publications have the advantages of 1) ease of development and updating, 2) the ability to display unlimited numbers of images in color, 3) the possibility of having instant collaboration with other botanists throughout the world, 4) the world-wide availability to anyone with access to an internet connection, and 5) and the ability to leave behind the legacy of all of the knowledge that one has accumulated over a career for others to use and build upon. The goal of the Lecythidaceae Pages is to make all information known about the Neotropical species of the family available online, to provide descriptions and images of the species, and make available electronic keys so that others can identify taxa of the family. This web site enables users to search for taxa, collections, literature, and specialized terms used to describe the flowers and fruits of Lecythidaceae. The Lecythidaceae Pages are database driven (KE Emu) and can be accessed at http://sweetgum.nybg.org/lp/index.html.
