Many people have provided multiple and varied contributions that have been essential to build and enrich this data portal.

Particular mention goes to the authors, photographers and publishers who have kindly provided content and agreed to make it available on the Sulawesi Begonia Data Portal. Authors are cited in the taxon pages in the manner standard in a scientific publication and photographers are credited on their images.

Journals and large aggregators like the Biodiversity Heritage Library have inmensely facilitated the job of gathering the relevant Begonia literature.

The portal was developed with the generous support of the Naturalis Biodiversity Center and the Botanischer Garten und Botanisches Museum Berlin. Underlying taxonomic work by D.C. Thomas and M. Hughes was funded by the M.L. MacIntyre Begonia Trust, underlying expeditions by D.C. Thomas and W.H. Ardi to Sulawesi were supported by the Royal Horticultural Society, the Stanley Smith (UK) Horticultural Trust, the Systematics Association and the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

Many thanks from the Sulawesi Begonia Data Portal team!
