||Bibliography - Vascular
Plants of Texas
This is a draft
or prototype system functioning as a 'test bed' for various procedures,
both botanical and computational, that facilitate digital expression of
a bibliography for the Digital Flora of Texas project. The system
works by processing a 'bibliography' data file to produce three products;
HTML pages with references ordered alphabetically by author, HTML pages
with references arranged by topic (families, 'general', and 'Texas' at
this point), a set of family-specific HTML pages, and a full text index
that will allow user to query reference collection for any that match a
given string of characters or group of strings. Some of the HTML
pages generated by the system carry queries to the index as links.
An 'bibliography' data file, originally formed from a file maintained by
Standly Jones as an update of the bibliography present in Jones and Wipff
A Checklist for the Vascular Plants of Texas
Stanley Jones), was supplemented by adding content from 'literature cited'
files from the
Shinners & Mahler's Illustrated Flora of North Central
Texas (thanks to George Diggs), the citations from Monique Reed's treatment
for the Dicots of Brazos and Surrounding Counties (thanks to Monique
Reed). New references will be added as they become available.
Some glitches are present in the HTML formatting, and the general structure
will be altered as we move along. However, this now functions as
a 'working' foundation for a digital reference source which can be browsed
or queried by linking author/date on web pages to a index query URL that

The same logo on other pages present in this window should return
to this page, and the 'Bibliography' link on content pages should refresh
the selection menu (below), as will a click on any logo image present in
a selection submenu (just families right now).
