Nature’s Facebook! We developed a new method based on networks, showing how the world’s biodiversity is formed by distinct clusters of species. Just like people who don’t know each other are often connected through common friends in social networks, species are connected to each other through their distributions.

I'm not often posting on Gplus, but this site needs to be known as widely as possible. It's the Naturalis digital repository, where you can now find digital copies of all major publications published by the former Rijksherbarium:  Flora Malesiana, Blumea, Leiden Botanical Series, Pacific Plant Areas and much more.
