The above mentioned indexes can be entry points to the site but they are basically working tools for our compiler(s). They can also help visitors (botanically minded or not) to get a genus name  matching "any" (that we have entered) common name. For quicker, simpler, more precise searches  please use the new beautiful  search engine provided by Google on the University server.
