IMPORTANT! Subsequent to a severely damaging crash, the EUROHERP database, and NeMys in general, have not been functioning like they should. A lot has been lost and the central NeMys admin is in lack of time and resources to fix things. Remember that NeMys and EUROHERP are pro deo work. At present, we are unable to predict a possible date of recovery, if any, although our intentions to recover are still vigorous. The EUROHERP admin apologises for the inconvenience and for not posting this notification sooner.
