And more kudos:
My wife and I came upon your website while searching
for information on club mosses (Lycophyta). What a great site! We especially
like having the glossary available to look up technical terms. My wife
has some background in botany, but some of the paleobotany terms were
new to us. Keep up the good work, and pass our compliments along to
So people keep asking me; What is the 'Web'
good for? And I keep saying; Go look at the UCMP site. And then
they say; Oh wow!!!!!
As a basic reference or as an introduction
to life, in its many forms, it cant be beaten.
You probably hear this a trillion times a day,
but your site is imaginative, so creative, and amazingly well structured.
I have seen a lot of sites, helped businesses build and link (we are
in the xml business) many of them‹business side and consumer side. But
yours is one of the best I have ever seen. From a personal perspective,
I have children and grandchildren who will benefit from your work.
I am also an artist and use cell cytology and fossils as subject matter
woven into my paintings. It is a treasure of a site and I appreciate
your work. Please pass along my congrats to your team and contributors.
It is truly a master work! Bravo!
