There are a growing number of useful resources available over the internet that relate to the work I do. Here’s a selection that I use frequently, a list that will continue to grow as I find new and useful resources:
EstimateS is a very useful program (freely available online) for species richness estimation and pother diversity measures, along with extensive supporting information developed and maintained by Robert Colwell.

The Parasitic Plant Connection is a useful set of resources compiled and maintained by Dan Nickrent, with particular emphasis on evolutionary patterns.
Trying to find an obscure paper about mistletoe, or find out more about a partiuclar aspect of these plants?
