General information and editorial notes
News and Notes:
The web site of the Biological Survey has undergone a face lift. Although the site is continuously updated it was time to implement an overall redesign. The former look of our web site was created in 2000 (although the Survey had a simpler web site for a few years prior to that). Over the years we continued to add content to the site to the point where the menu structure had become unwieldy, where the route to sub-pages was not always clear and where the meaning of some titles — as necessarily abbreviated in the original format — were not easily understood. Running the web site is only one of the tasks of the Survey Secretariat and therefore ease of maintenance was a consideration. For example, the former menu was graphical in nature and more difficult to update than the current text-based menu.
Highlights of the changes include:
The web site continues to be maintained also in a parallel French version.
