SaxBase Development Plan

SaxBase has evolved significantly since its inception but ultimately the intention is to provide detailed information about all Saxifragaceae.  It will continue to grow in coverage, detail and structure, as and when I have time to do so.  Suggestions for enhancements are always entertained and offers to assist in adding detail to the database would also be gladly accepted.  This does not require technical expertise, only the ability to input info into a spreadsheet which I would then import.  Here is a list of what is planned and what is in progress:
