The alphabetical list (formerly List of WWW Sites of Interest to Botanists) was compiled by Anthony R. Brach. It was originally posted on TAXACOM in March 1995. HTML format is created and maintained by Shunguo Liu. The subject category list (formerly A Collection of Botany Related URLs), is maintained by Raino Lampinen since Autumn 1993. It started as a personal bookmark list of botanical gopher sites, since March 1994 also www sites, and was made available via WWW in December 1994.
