New Email List and Online Key

Hello everyone,

I wanted to bring to your attention a newly established emaiI list that aims to better facilitate communication among the global community of pteridologists.

The International Pteridological Network (inpternet) is set up as a Google Group, so that by simply sending an email to the group address, members are able to reach the entire (subscribed) global pteridological community. If you would like to be part of this group, please send me an email to and I will forward an invitation.

Below, I provide two examples of the sort of messages that might be sent to the inpternet, concerning the online identification of Amazonian ferns.

All the best,

Eric Schuettpelz

The key can be accessed through our team’s web pages

And through the Ferns and Lycophytes of the World site
