      In celebration of this year's Pollinator Week, 20-26 June
      (http://www.pollinator.org/pollinator_week_2011.htm), I'm pleased to
      announce the availability of a bibliographic database
      containing >10,000 references about pollination biology. This
      project by the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII),
      a program administered by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), puts on
      the Web an EndNote database I've been collecting for a few decades,
      as described at
      The link to the database is www.nbii.gov/inouye. The Web site works
      with Firefox and Safari browsers at present.

      If you have references that are not included in the database, or
      other suggestions about how to improve the portal, please send them
      to me. The database will be updated regularly as new literature appears.

      Happy Pollinator Week.
