Organizing the taxonomy of the world's flora and fauna is an extremely complex task. The development of useable, let alone useful, botanic data bases requires an appropriate number of clearly defined search fields. Since botany has been the poor stepsister of the physical sciences until recent times, there is a lot of reorganization and redefinition needed before the current systems of terminology can be used for such projects. The sites listed above represent much of the effort to this end. Anyone seriously interested in the generation, publication, and compiling of botanical data will find these sites relevant to the usefulness of their work.
I've included them in my site as an aid to visitors who wish to bring matters to my attention or who wish to explore the intensity of involvment required by this task.
