Conditions of use

Applications of this package (including the downloading and duplication of text and images) are encouraged, without fee, provided copies are not made or distributed for direct commercial advantage and the source is acknowledged in publications of all kinds. We would appreciate being informed of such applications.

The JPEG illustrations provided here were designed for convenience of distribution and screen display, and are less sharp than the high resolution TIF scans from which most of them were generated. The latter have been retained, and could be made available for worthwhile applications.


We would appreciate constructive comments on this package. In particular, we would be interested to hear from suitably knowledgeable persons interested in collaborating as joint authors in its further development, especially with a view to extending the coverage to generic level, and/or initiating parallel automated treatments for other regions.
