Acknowledgements

Many friends and colleagues have helped to bring this volume to fruition in one way or another. I would first like to thank all the authors for generously investing much of their valuable time in this endeavor, and especially for patiently bearing with my editorial demands. Many coauthors, as well as other colleagues, were extremely helpful in providing comparative specimens and published and unpublished data to others, raising the funds for covering travel expenses in order to jointly complete their sections, locating hard to get copyright clearances, allowing to use their unpublished or copyrighted materials, etc. Among these, as editor I am particularly grateful to Carina Lange, Janet Bradford-Grieve, Jean-Paul Casanova, Jordi Corbera, Paul Cornelius, Mark Gibbons, Ray Gibson, Lena Markhaseva, Yasunobu Matsuura, Hermes W. Mianzan, Masaaki Murano, Makoto Omori, María Pilar Olivar, Charrid Resgalla, Carlos E. F. Rocha and Georgy Vinogradov.

The assistance and permanent advice of Stanley Kling throughout many months of hard work was a major support and is very sincerely appreciated. Eleonora Uliana and Michiko Matsubara patiently proofread thousands of manuscript pages and assembled hundreds of illustrations. Editorial aspects of the book were partly financed by grants from the University of Buenos Aires (UBA EX-040), from the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas, Argentina (CONICET PID-BID 0366), and from the Agencia Nacional de Promoción Científica y Tecnológica, Argentina (PMT-PICT0395). My contribution to this work is dedicated to my father, Esteban Boltovskoy, whose guidance and support over the years were a major influence in my life.

I finally thank Peter Schalk (director ETI) and the ETI staff members for for processing thousands of data and making one interactive multimedia catalogue out of two massive books. The coordinators were Matthijs van Couwelaar and Rob P. Heijman. To illustrate the DVD-ROM thousands of line drawings and other kinds of illustrations were processed by Tekla L. Boersma, Ulrike May and Eva Piqué Ripoll. Different chapters of the book were prepared for Linnaeus II modules by Matthijs van Couwelaar, Wijnand R.B. Heitmans, Huub Veldhuijzen van Zanten and Henk Visser. The developments of the Linnaeus II software was in the hands of Jorrit van Hertum and Ruud Altenburg. Finalisation, testing and preparation for production was done by Jorrit van Hertum, Ruud Altenburg, Wijnand Heitmans, Huub Veldhuijzen van Zanten and Tekla Boersma.
