It is rather odd that you are having trouble finding information that would
be second nature to a botanical researcher. You will not find what you seek
in cyberspace. That's why its called research.
You are still not coming clean about what this is and who its for.
And for which big name private company are you employed to do this research?
I'm sure you're well compensated for you work. How much are consultants
usually paid to provide the info you are requesting gratis?
I'm sure you are not giving away what you come up for free so why should you
expect us to give away what we can find?
