The Alwyn H. Gentry Bignoniaceaee Specimen Data Set

Structure of the Excel Files

This database is a modified subset of TROPICOS, the Missouri Botanical Garden's taxonomic database. Most of the data was derived and corrected from Al Gentry's database, and stored originally in dBase (.DBF) format. In 2001, the files were reformatted into Excel format.

In the column TYPE, C refers to a character string and N refers to a numeric string. LENGTH refers to the field length.
