sonoran desert flora
« on: June 20, 2005, 04:23:41 pm »
Hello Tracey,

I have assembled a short list of various plants and animals that would be useful for my project. I have named them correctly, at least to genus name often to species, but have not included the common names. Would you like me to pass those on to you too? I have tried to give you shots of the detail as well as a shot that gives a sense for the whole plant. No rush as I have already put preliminary models up on the web and will use these to enrich those images whenever they are ready. I will be sending a few at a time so expect a few emails.
Thanks so much and let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Sarah,
The common names would be useful too if you know them already. Otherwise I'll just look them up on the web.

If you'd like, you can just keep replying to this message to post the new symbol requests you have?

Cheers,
Tracey

Tracey,

I'm going to leave it at that for today and send a few more tomorrow or wednesday. The Agave is known as a Century plant, the Centaurea is a yellow starthistle and the Calliandra is known as Fairy Duster.

Thanks, Sarah.

Hello Tracey,

I wanted to check in with you and see how progress was going on the Sonoran Desert plants I had sent through. I appreciate I sent quite a few!! but wondered if you had completed any?

Thanks for your time

Sarah.

Hey Sarah,
I've been a bit swamped with other work, but I will try to get onto these soon!

Here are the symbols for a Prickly pear cactus and a Creosote bush.  Sorry for the delay!
