South Central China and Tibet: Hotspot of Diversity - Map and Gazetteer

Ed./Corp.: The Arnold Arboretum, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA.
URL: http://www.arboretum.harvard.edu/library/tibet/map.html
Language: English.

Self description: "Joseph Rock traced his travels for the Arboretum's
1924-1927 expedition in a colorful, hand-drawn map entitled 'Ch'ing-Hai
upper Yellow River expedition.' The pen-and-ink drawing was made on ten
sheets that when joined form a single, irregularly-shaped map,
approximately six by eight feet in size. [...] A gazetteer that
references the map and the index is now available as a searchable
database."

Resource suggested via Asian Studies WWW Monitor (20 Apr 2005) by Dan
Martin, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Israel.
