Mr. David Tarkhnishvili and his team are working on an important database of Georgian Biodiversity compiling lists of species of animals and plants following the hierarchical order reflecting recent taxonomy/phylogenetic system. Currently there are around 870 images in the database. The site also provides information and images of the main natural habitats in Georgia like Arid and semi-arid Mediterranean-like landscapes, Subalpine, alpine landscapes and mountain steppe and others.
The project is situated at the temporary location http://altar.freehostia.com
and is searching for support on finding a hosting with enough webspace to provide all relevant information and images.
Photographic images of individual species of Georgian Fauna and Flora which are not yet included in the Database are kindly welcome.

The SOAS Central Asia and Caucasus Society and
The Centre of Contemporary Central Asia & the Caucasus present:
Revolution through Rose-coloured Glasses: Law and Institutions in Georgia
Georgia is at the same time exemplary of the difficulties plaguing
post-Soviet reconstruction and a case unto itself -- a story of
extremes, from civil war to the first "NGO government" in post-Soviet
space. Chris Waters and Scott Newton, two legal specialists of the
region, discuss what's changed and what hasn't since the Rose Revolution.
