Arkansas Biodiversity: The Vascular Flora
"This project is based on information taken from An Atlas and Annotated List of the Vascular Plants of Arkansas, a product of Dr. Edwin B. Smith and the University of Arkansas Herbarium. Published in 1988 (2nd edition), and currently out of print, this volume provides a great deal of specific information on the vascular plants of Arkansas. A subset of that is provided here as background for the diversity/distribution mapping system...An experimental informatics system under development as a collaborative enterprise among faculty and students of the University of Arkansas Herbarium, the Biota of North America Program and the Texas A&M Bioinformatics Working Group"

Chytrid Fung Online
A PEET Project Website
"Here you will find information on members of the order Chytridiales in the phylum Chytridiomycota (Kingdom Fungi), including a description of genera, tips and techniques on how to isolate chytrids, current hypotheses of chytrid phylogeny, links to other relevant websites, and a searchable reference database. The goal of this site is to provide an online resource for students, teachers, and researchers wanting to learn more about chytrids as well as an easily accessed interface for taxonomic information. Since the work on chytridialean taxonomy and phylogeny is an on-going process, this site will be continually updated to reflect the changes brought about by new research."
