    It seems to me that there is enough interest in these trees to warrant a species gallery, like the one over in Pines.

    Any thoughts?

    There isn't a pine gallery, or even a Pinaceae gallery, just a conifer gallery, which of course includes Araucariaceae. Whether there's a case for splitting the conifer gallery into 7 family galleries (Araucariaceae, Cephalotaxaceae, Cupressaceae, Pinaceae, Podocarpaceae, Sciadopityaceae, Taxaceae), I'm not sure.

    When the update for the forums software occurs, there are going to be more features related to photo galleries... something like this will be possible then.

    Very cool!

    Micheal - I'd say that there is an argument for splitting by family. It would make the galleries much easier to navegate and find the species in question. And if there are members of the Araucaraceae in the conifer gallery, I can't find 'em.
