RE': Final Report DEP Contract No. SL849 "Identifying the Invaders"

In fulfillment of the grant requirements, the Digital Library Center and the University of
Florida Herbarium digitized 40 of the 55 specimens from the Category II invasive exotics
list compiled by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council. On-line access is available at the
"Introduced Species of Florida" web site:
http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/herbarium/cat/imagelistintroduced.htm The Web interface was
designed and programmed by Kent Perkins. Prints of the Web site top-level pages are
included as Attachment A. Because the intent was to assist researchers and citizens in
identification of the species, close-ups of various plant parts were also captured. Sixty-
nine total images, 29 beyond the grant requirement, can be accessed through the
project pages.

High-resolution images were acquired by Digital Library Center camera operators using
a ZBE Satellite large format stationary camera equipped with a PowerPhase ARI camera
back, 135mm Rodenstock lens and daylight lighting. A Macintosh (PowerMac G4)
computer system with 17 gigabytes of storage and 800 megabytes of active memory
was used in digital image capture and manipulation. Colorimetrics were calibrated
using Kodak Q-60R1 target per ANSI IT8.7/2-1993(1999:04). Intermediate processing of
digital herbarium images was done with Adobe Photoshop 7.0. Uncompressed TIFFs
were burned to CD for archival storage. Web accessible images were created using
Lizardtech MrSID geoencoding software. These images permit user viewing at a 1:1
ratio and are available globally from the SID server maintained by the Florida Center for
Library Automation.

The data presented for each species includes accession number, family, scientific
names, common names, and images. Links have been created from the accession
number to the label data, from the scientific name to a complete listing of all herbarium
specimens for that species, and from the images to the digital plant photographs.
Attachment B shows the data linkages.

Data for a total of 996 specimens matching the EPPC category II invasive species has
been entered into the database by the OPS student, hired and supervised by Kent
Perkins, Manager of the Collections, University of Florida Herbarium.

Statistics on usage of the digital images were captured from the SID server at the Florida
Center for Library Automation. From the time the images became available in









December 2002 through April 15, 2003, they have been accessed 4,608 times. These
accesses include an initial view of a specimen, either a complete specimen sheet or an
identifying part, and then additional study of the plant by zooming in and out on particular
parts. Table 1 indicates by scientific name the plants that were accessed and
manipulated. Species that were accessed more than 100 times include Adenanthera
pavonina, Aleuties fordii, Dalbergia sissoo, Passiflora biflora, and Ricinus communis.
With good usage of this site already documented, the PIs believe that additional
specimens: the remaining Category II specimens and the Category I specimens would
increase the site's research potential. Future funding for this expansion will be sought.

All deliverables stipulated in the grant have been completed. In accord with the grant
requirements, the Office of Contracts and Grants, University of Florida will send the
appropriate invoices after June 1, 2003, the Task Assignment Completion Date.

The PIs appreciate the financial support of Florida DEP in creating this research site and
have acknowledged that contribution on the project homepage.
