    Maybe. I have Edge and Chrome here on my laptop and it's working on both of them. I just tried it again. Maybe it's personal. :)
    No, really, I don't know what to suggest, whether so few people can see it that I should remove it or not. I'm on Win 10, but this isn't a new up-to-date page, so no reason the newer browsers should be what makes this work. Or maybe that is. I even get the current temperature in Council Bluffs, IA (that's on the home page, not the Trees page to which our link goes).

    I have added to Maple Resources a link to Plantaholic Sheila’s albums | Flickr, photos posted by Silver surfer. On flickr, I was seeing all these photos being uploaded, with leaves in different seasons and flowers and samaras, it seemed like it would be a very good resource here.

    These both work for me. Are they a problem for other people?

    Wendy, both of the links take me to "The Japanese Maple" page now. Thanks.

    An excellent illustrated reference in French by a non-professional passionate:

    érables accueil

    Very accurate info on classification, synonyms, description, habitat, etc.

    Thanks, @AlainK. I've added it to the resource page, used the title as you gave it.

    Here are some that are not in our resource list, but should be! @wcutler :) They are from the Arboretum Wespelaar site, Arboretum Wespelaar, which is a really fabulous site with information on many genera. The director of Wespelaar is Maple Society stalwart and all around nice guy Koen Camelbeke.

    The de Langhe Acer key has been updated in collaboration with Maple Society Committee Member Dan Crowley of Westonbirt Arboretum: http://www.arboretumwespelaar.be/userfiles/file/pdf/Key_acer_JDL.pdf

    (This new key supersedes the version at Henrietta's Herbal, which should probably be removed from the resource list).

    A very good list of Acer species with photographs is available here: http://www.arboretumwespelaar.be/EN/Identification_keys_and_illustrations/List_of_illustrated_taxa/ and then click on Acer. You will note that many genera are so illustrated, although some are less complete.

    Further there is a searchable database of images linked to the identification keys here: Identificatiesleutels. For example, all the Acer can be listed by entering Acer in the "Scientific Name" box, or species can be searched for individually.

    Sorry to take so long with this - I didn't realize that it would be so easy, as it's really all one site and you've written the whole blurb! I have updated it now.

    I removed the Henriette's Herbal listing as you suggested, @emery, but am just listing it here with @Gomero's comment. I see that it is a more recent version of the Jan De Langhe key that is on the Wespelaar site.

    Henriette's Herbal: Acer key and image collection
    Acer key and image collection by Jan De Langhe, hosted on the website of Henriette Kress. Viewable as html or pdf.

    Gomero wrote in a review of this resource: These keys were field tested by the Maple Society Members during the last Maple Society Symposium. They were excellent; we obtained 100% ID success rate for all the maples we tested.

    Yes, the key on Henriette's is a version from 2011, the update on the Wespelaar site is from 2017. Otherwise it's the same key, there are probably only a few minor differences surrounding Asian maples.

    If you wanted to put Gomero's quote with the new version, it would still be accurate and I'm sure he won't mind. You could change "These keys" to "The previous version of these keys" to be totally accurate! :)

    I have added this to the Resource.

    I also added two books that @JT1 mentioned at Identification: - maple ID, which pushed the page over the maximum size, so I split off books from online resources. Another few additions to online resources will necessitate splitting that page to something like A-M and N-Z.
