This site provides free informatiom and users can copy freely from it but in fact it is often difficult to copy material and even more difficult to print it.

For this reason I have converted parts of the site into Free Downloads. These are PDF files that incorporate the photos into a single printable document. They can be printed for convenient use in the field or class room. When you have loaded a pdf file save it for printing. Then return to the Downland page on this site using the back button on your web brouser. I have not put a return link to the Download page as I wanted the pdf file to be printer ready.
