To whom should I direct questions about possible duplicate entries in the plant database, or other things that may need tweaking? I am in the rather arduous process of transferring my personal Word database onto the ATP List feature, and sometimes have a hard time lining my entries up to ATPs (usually because the latin name has recently changed, in which case I search using common name). During this process, I occasionally uncover what appears to me to be duplicate entries of the same plant. As I recall it is often Zuzu or Calif-Sue who approve my photos and comments -- are they appropriate persons to direct my questions to? Doesn't seem particularly useful to post as a general discussion topic. Thanks.

The best bet is to post those to the Plant Database forum. Then whatever admin is available can handle it.

Well, duh. I didn't realize we had a plant database forum. That makes perfect sense and I will post my queries there. Thanks for the heads-up.

And to further acknowledge my boneheadedness -- I have previously posted on the Plant Database forum -- double duh!

Thanks, Sue, I have done that. Reconciling my database to ATP is likely going to be a winter-long project, done in dibs and dabs.
