It is unfortunately necessary to create some restriction on the reproduction of the material on this web site. In general, I do not object to reproduction of content in printed (hardcopy) form, and if the material is useful, I encourage this use. Reproduction of text electronically is also not a problem. However, images are a different matter. I would like to ask folks browsing the site to refrain from copying and distributing the images without explicit permission. Hence, the following formal (unfortunate but necessary) copyright statements.
All material on this site is copyright by Ronald Myhr, except as noted below:
- The article Gesneriacea by B. Morley on the page "Botany of Gesneriads" is copyright Oxford University Press.
- Images are copyright by the respective photographers, as noted on each image page. Where no specific photographer is identified, the image is copyright by Ronald Myhr.
- Where text is identified as originating with an author other than Ronald Myhr, that material is copyright by the respective authors.
Permission is hereby granted for the reproduction of all material copyright by Ronald Myhr, as follows:
- Text and images may be reproduced in hard copy (printed) form for any non-profit purpose, including newsletters and magazines. The material must be identified as copyright Ronald Myhr, and a reference to the website address should also be included. Notification of the publication should be provided by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. In some cases, higher-resolution versions of the images, or original slides and negatives, may be available, which may be better suited for hard copy reproduction. Contact me at the e-mail address above for information.
- Text may be reproduced and distributed in electronic form for any non-profit purpose, provided that the material is identified as copyright Ronald Myhr, and a reference to the website address is included. Where the distribution is part of an online discussion or personal e-mail, it is not necessary to provide the copyright notice, only the website address.
- Images may be reproduced and/or retransmitted in electronic form only with the express prior consent of Ronald Myhr. Contact me at email@example.com for information.
- For all other permissions, including commercial use, please contact me at the above e-mail address.
For images copyright by others, please contact me for information. In most cases, I can provide e-mail addresses for these photographers, and they should be contacted directly for all permissions, including both hardcopy and electronic reproduction.
