First eMonocot Plenary meeting

The first eMonocot Plenary meeting took place at Kew on the 27th January. It was the first time all the members of the team were brought together in one room and it was great to see the room so full. 


EDIT meeting Paris

Last week many members of the emonocot team were in Paris, in the stunning surroundings of the Jardin des Plantes and the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle, to attend the EDIT Year 5 event: "Information in the age of biodiversity loss". http://www.e-taxonomy.eu/year5event


eMonocot has begun

I am pleased to announce that eMonocot has begun. Most staff are in place with some additional members due to start in the New Year. You should  therefore begin to see more activity on this site over the next few months.

One of the first tasks for eMonocot is to gather system requirements. To help with this we invite you to participate in a short survey, it is open to all potential users of eMonocot.

Until the New Year have a great Christmas.
