eFlora Maleasiana data portal

Flora Malesiana now has an data portal and wiki available. The data portal is based on the EDIT CDM platform. Flora Malesiana Series I volumes 11 Part 3, 12-20 and Series II volumes 2 and 3 have been marked up and should be available through the dataportal. This consists of almost 4,500 pages of printed treatments, covering around 3,820 taxa belonging to 33 families.

At present, data is available for the following families:

  • Apocynaceae
  • Azollaceae
  • Boraginaceae
  • Caesalpiniaceae
  • Caryophyllaceae
  • Cheiropleuriaceae
  • Cucurbitaceae
  • Cunoniaceae
  • Daphniphyllaceae
  • Davalliaceae
  • Equisetaceae
  • Geitonoplesiaceae
  • Hernandiaceae
  • Llliciaceae
  • Loganiaceae
  • Loranthaceae
  • Lowiaceae
  • Matoniaceae
  • Meliaceae
  • Moraceae
  • Myristicaceae
  • Nepenthaceae
  • Picrodendraceae
  • Plagiogyriaceae
  • Polypodiaceae
  • Rafflesiaceae
  • Schisandraceae
  • Tectaria
  • Viscaceae

Please keep in mind that the data portal is still being developed and as such does not yet have all functionality available. Mark up activities for the remaining volumes of the flora will hopefully take place in 2014.

FM wiki

The wiki is based on the Biowikifarm platform, a general purpose tool with significantly enhanced collaboration, community data-markup and harvesting functionality. Biowikifarm can be adapted to a broad variety of projects without recourse to a redevelopment and without compromising the long-term maintainability. The FM wiki is used to display the non-taxonomic data (i.e. static content): consisting of the Cyclopedia of Collectors and the FM Bulletin (newsletters, expedition reports, and bibliography). At present, 1/3 of the Cyclopedia of Collectors is already available on the wiki.
