EXPLORE THE WORLD OF BOTANICAL GOPHERS !
Don't believe the English proverb that you don't get something
for nothing, gophers will prove you wrong. There is a wealth of
the most useful information on the computer network and it is
relatively easy to get what you want.
If you want to search the Gray Herbarium Index, you find it at
the Harvard University gopher. My gopher exploration usually
starts there. Type
and you will get the Gray Herbarium Index, herbarium catalogues
of type specimens (in HUH - Harvard University Herbaria and in
other locations). Through this gopher I can get connected to
other gophers, and the Australian National Botanical Garden
gopher is the most complete botanical gopher I know.
For bryological information (lists of mosses and liverworts for
certain parts of the world, bryological news, taxonomical and
ecological software, etc.) go to
For general information, religious books, world gazetteers, type
You can find Una Smith's Internet Guide for biologists here.
If you are interested in environmental information, go to En-
(login: gopher when you are connected).
Gophers are easy to use. VERONICA is an extension to gophers,
and you can use it to search for whatever topics through the
whole gopherspace. You can get the VERONICA search from any
gopher you enter.
You don't have to know, how the gopher works, but if you are
interested, read either of the following books:
Krol, Ed. 1992. The whole Internet: User's guide and catalogue.
O'Reilley & Associates, Sebastopol, California.
Fisher, Sharon. 1993. Riding the Internet highway. New Riders
Publishing, Carmel, Indiana.
If you get lost in the gopherspace, my internet guru Gary Shear-
man told me that you can get the internet address of a gopher
you are in by typing "=" (without apostrophes). I tried it and
it works. By using this internet address, you can get back to
the same gopher without going and searching through the maze of
There is a Czech proverb that says: "It is foolish to give
something for nothing, but it is even more foolish not to take
it." Remember, you would be foolish not to use gophers!
