Encyclopaedia of Bromeliads CD/DVD

ISBN / EAN 9789081770811(Nederlands graag)


October 2005 the first version of this Bromeliad CD project was presented, combining as much information and photos as possible about all existing Bromeliad species and names.

We did realize that this was a monster project and we can not do it on our own. Especially we need picture donors to get most of the species illustrated.

The project started with a collaboration of three BCG members: Eric Gouda, Hugo Claessen and Kees Gouda. For literature references Leo Dijkgraaf has been asked to share his affords in his search for Bromeliad literature and he was willing to do so. Soon Derek Butcher joined to work on the huge task to get the plant description data ready to be included. After four years (October 2009) a fully redesigned version 2 was introduced, that looked much nicer and had much more photographs. Now after an other 3 years we are ready to introduce version 3.

What is new in version 3

Much more information, larger photos and (old) plates has been added in this version. The information is organized within Tab pages. The use of pop-up windows has been eliminated.

From the CD/DVD you can access the on line database for updated information if you like or for additional photographs. For this you have to register your copy and you will be kept informed about future updates and new versions. http://encyclopedia.florapix.nl
