Welcome to Malpighiales

Welcome to the Malpighiales Scratchpad.

Our aims are to provide a collection of useful information, identification tools and weblinks for the Malpighiales taxa, and to promote collaborative Malpighiales research.

We hope you enjoy the site.




With many thanks to Emma McLarnon (Kew, 2010 – 2011) and Andrew Budden (Kew) for development of the site structure.
