The Protea Atlas

The writing of the Protea Atlas is now underway and the first sample texts are now available. Your comments and opinions - in a text or word file or e-mail - would be much appreciated and this should be sent to Tony Rebelo.

Make sure you have Adobe Reader installed on your computer before attempting to read the preliminary guide.

Please first read the following before assessing the sample texts - these contain the definition of terms and restrictions on interpretation of the data. They will form parts of the introduction. These are also "under development" and your comments on these would also be appreciated - especially if you find the descriptions unclear:

The text is being written in two stages.
In this first phase the ancilliary data and bulk of the text have been written.
When this process is complete we will move to phase two and insert the maps and the "Distribution" text.
The following genera and sections are available:

The order of the genera in The Atlas will be: Brabejum and allies; Aulax, Faurea, Protea; Serruria, Paranomus, Sorocephalus, Spatalla; Leucadendron, Vexatorella, Leucospermum, Diastella, Mimetes, Orothamnus and Oldenburgia.

The next phase it to complete the maps and distribution accounts. If you have any strong ideas please contact us!

Thanks so far to Nick Helme, for comments on Diastella .
Thanks to Ruth Smart who has been proofing the entire MS
