The Leguminosae are one of the most important plant families: many species are used as food, green manure or timber. This CD-ROM holds a detailed information system covering all 212 species of the Mimosoideae, native and cultivated, in the Flora Malesiana region. Based on Flora Malesiana Vol. 11.1 by I.C. Nielsen, this work is much extended with over 1600 unique illustrations, full descriptions, information on uses, habitat, ecology, and distribution for each taxon (including the Caesalpinioideae genera). Identification is facilitated by three types of computer assisted keys: a dichotomous key to all mimosoid species (and the caesalpinioid genera), and a pictorial key plus a multi-access key to mimosoids. An innovative diagnostic system allows complex searches on distribution, uses and habitat. An interactive geographic information system presents distribution data and supports geographic comparisons. A literature database with 216 references and a hyperlinked illustrated glossary to more than 750 botanical terms are part of the system. This CD-ROM is a taxonomic reference work that belongs in every scientific library on plants in SE Asia.
