In the Neotropics (Central and South America) the Annonaceae are one of the largest tropical plant families. Some genera are of economic importance (fruits, and ornamental purposes). This CD-ROM holds a fully up-to-date information system on all known neotropical genera (39) of the Annonaceae with concise descriptions and additional information. For 263 species of 17 revised genera highly detailed descriptions are provided, accompanied by line drawings, photos and full color slides of plant, flower, fruit and seed, and geographical distributions. Identification of the species is facilitated by two types of computer assisted keys: a dichotomous key, and several multi-access keys. An interactive geographic information system presents distribution data and supports geographic searches and comparisons. A literature database with over 2400 references and a hyperlinked illustrated glossary of terms are part of the system. This CD-ROM is a taxonomic reference work for researchers of various disciplines such as: plant taxonomists, curators of plant collections, ecologists, foresters, ethnobotanists, pharmacologists, teachers and nature conservators and managers.
