Added MBG Specimen Distribution Map


Last night, we added an "MBG Specimen Distribution Map" link to the home page, which shows the distribution of Specimens stored in our database. We used Google Charts (http://code.google.com/apis/chart/), specifically the "Map" chart type. Below the map, we show the counts by country, as well.

It'd be better to add commas to separate thousands in the list of number. It'd be nice to either be able to sort the list of countries' names or search it; as it stands it's tedious to answer questions like, "How many specimens does the TROPICOS database contain from Mauritius?"
