First of all:
A very big thank you to Peter Ritchie and Lockside Software Ltd for hosting BioImages
for the first eleven years to June 2009.
Since then I am grateful to JustHost (www.JustHost.com) for completely trouble-free hosting.
I am pleased also to thank the following people and organisations for making available the checklists
used in BioImages and the present site, and in the database from which they are built:
The Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) and Stuart Ball for allowing me to use the Taxon Dictionary from Recorder 3.
Botanical Society for the British Isles (BSBI) and Alex Lockton for permission to use their Higher Plant checklist.
British Mycological Society (BMS) and Paul Kirk for permission to use the checklist from the Foray Records Database of Britain and Ireland (FRDBI).
London Natural History Museum and Chris Raper for permission to use the UK Species Inventory (UKSI) checklists.
Stefan Buczacki for permission to abstract pest and disease relationships from his and Keith Harris's "Pests, Diseases and Disorders of Garden Plants".
I'd also like to thank the large number of individuals over the years who have shared their finds and time in the field,
taken me to sites, helped with identifications and corrected my occasional inaccuracies on the website.
But mostly I want to thank my wife, Christine, for her patience and encouragement in the face of a major investment of my time.
