Data bases

We have experts on both the information stored in the R&I and computer 
experts that can advise on the manipulation the data to speed up the 
tranformation to a digital form.  The problem is AIS does not have a large 
budget.  At the World Conservation Congress, I spoke about the same problem 
and suggested that there should be greater use of the private sector by the 
biologists and horticulturalists of the world.  AIS might contract out the  
transfer of the data and its sale in a text or electonic format.  A royalty 
would be paid to AIS.  As the document is of interest to a lot of people 
over a long time period, and requires continuous new editions, it might be a 
reasonable commerical proposition.
