[First Installment -- 26 April 2001]


Those specifically for the printed version:

[Note: Corrections for Tables 2-14 in Plant Diversity of an Andean Cloud Forest will not be as regularly updated as additions and corrections to the enumeration of taxa section.]

On cover and title page, replace "Checklist" with "Inventory".

On page 11, Table 1 (Numbers of vascular plant taxa at Maquipucuna) is updated here.

On page 29, fifth line from the bottom:
    "Acosta-Solís, 1962" should read "Acosta-Solís, 1966".

On page 42, the collector’s name should be spelled "Østergaard" throughout the page.

On page 85, in the discussion of Chamaesyce:
    "Cerón" should be accented.

On page 89, the bottom line is indented too far.

On page 98, on the fifth line, the passage should read:

    "(det. R. M. Harley),".

On page 203, change the listing of Cyphomandra hypomalaca to Solanum fallax.


The following corrections and additions should be made to both the printed version of the enumeration of taxa and to the enumeration of taxa lists available at this site.

        Sec. for., 1300-1500 m; ep.: 28133***, 30004***.
