DELTA sample data

M. J. Dallwitz and L. Watson


These data on grass genera were collected in DELTA format by L. Watson of the Australian National University. They are an extract from the full data set, which contains descriptions of about 800 genera in terms of more than 500 characters (Watson and Dallwitz 1981; Watson, Dallwitz and Johnston 1986; Watson and Dallwitz 1992). The extract was chosen to illustrate the use of the DELTA programs, and is not intended to be a biologically meaningful subset.
