Creationist geologist sues U.S. park service after it rejects request to collect samples in Grand Canyon (by Amanda Reilly, May 19, 2017).

! National Center for Science Education (NCSE), Oakland, CA.
NCSE is a US-nationally-recognized clearinghouse for information and advice to keep evolution in the science classroom and "scientific creationism" out. NCSE defends the integrity of science education against ideological interference. This website provides reviews of current anti-evolution activity in the United States and around the world and detailed information on the Creation/Evolution controversy from 1859 to the present. Go to:
! Evolution. The National Center for Science Education is the only national organization devoted to defending the teaching of evolution in public schools. See especially:
Antievolution petition rebuffed in Serbia (by Glenn Branch, May 15, 2017).

Daily Mail, London:
Creationist sues the Grand Canyon for religious discrimination after he is denied the right to remove 60 rocks (by Phoebe Weston, May 19, 2017).

! Visual Plants. Based on a scientific database, the program can be used for the visual determination of plants. Now with around 22000 images, mostly with geo-referenced information. You can search using taxon names or via plant characters.

! Interim Register of Marine and Nonmarine Genera (IRMNG), a project of OBIS Australia, now hosted at VLIZ, Belgium. The Interim Register of Marine and Nonmarine Genera is a provisional compilation of genus names – including species names in many cases – and covers both living and extinct biota into a single system to support taxonomic and other queries dealing with e.g. homonyms, authorities, parent-child relationships, spelling variations and distinctions between marine and non-marine or fossil and recent taxa. Excellent! See especially:
! IRMNG taxon details. "Family" sporae dispersae with at present 2871 genera listed.
! Dinoflagellates (extant and fossil).
! Acritarchs.
