External websites

Hyperlinks to other resources of Lacistemataceae are incorporated throughout this website. So you the user (or me!) do not have to trawl through my entire website looking for that "needle in a haystack" link, the job has been done for you.

Specific type specimen links are not included. These links are replaced with online collection databases from herbaria holding Lacistemataceae type specimens.

Also to be found here are useful contacts relating to securing land for indigenous peoples, conservation, sustainable usage of forests, policies and legislation relating to Mexico, middle and South America.
