Work programme of the Nomenclature Committee
Directed to the Nomenclature Committee
The Nomenclature Committee shall:
a) maintain and update the databases from which the orchid checklists were generated, to facilitate publication of updates to these lists as required by the Parties. In addition, all of the databases require work to enable them to be made available in electronic form to the Parties. The most work required is for the upgrade to the Cactus Checklist database. The key databases should be converted and maintained at a level to allow printing 'on demand' for future publications; and
b) at the same time, CD-ROMs should be developed and searchable checklists should be established on the World Wide Web. It is beyond the scope of the nomenclature programme to fund such projects fully. It is hoped that the provision of limited seed funding will encourage organizations and institutions to develop, host and maintain websites and transfer checklists to CD-ROMs.
