    We gratefully acknowledge the institutions that maintain those collections and provided their data, as well as the thousands of collectors who since the 1850's deposited specimens in those collections.

    Without all of these people and institutions this project obviously would not have been possible.

    Finally, we acknowledge in advance all of those site users who we hope will soon add their comments and content to the overall project.
