Subject: Search CP database: Web-pages related to Carnivorous Plants

Hi, I have tried to create a WEB-robot (spider) that is specific to
  a small area of interest, (yes CPs) and let it loose on the Web to
  find as many pages relevant to CPs as possible.

The robot starts with some manually selected CP specific WWW-pages.
It then follow all links from those pages recursively using a simple
list of subject specific terms, on the fly during the harvesting
process, to determine if a page should be included and to allow the
harvesting depth to be adapted to the distribution of relevant

The resulting collection is made into a searchable database
available at <URL: >

Try it out and let me know what you think.

Regards Anders
