TitleAn interactive key to the APG3 families of Monocots
DescriptionThis key was created for the eMonocot project, which was funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). Kubitzki (1998a; 1998b) provided the main basis for the scores; Stevens (2001 onwards) and Watson & Dallwitz, (1992 onwards) were secondary sources. Fruit character information was reworked from a dataset provided by Wolfgang Stuppy. Geographical data came from the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families. Thanks are due to Paul Wilkin, Anna Haigh and David Simpson for their constructive comments on character states and illustrations; Soraya Villalba, Ruth Bone, Sarah Phillips and Niamh Kilgallen for their feedback; Joseph Kelly and Ben Clark for technical support.Kubitzki, K.
