Discussion and conclusions

Database development was complex, resource intensive, and time consuming. Semiautomatic interactive graphic tools were critical. They allowed us to work paperless and facilitated international cooperation via Internet. Project benefited from the expertise, resources, and experiences of the research groups. Samples of the database will be available on, while the database will be published on CD-ROMs and will be released in the spring of 2001.
