A digital library of scholarly resources from and about Africa
This site provides data on taxa of the macrofungal, largely ectomycorrhizal genus Amanita, the saprobic genus Limacella, and the family Amanitaceae (Agaricales, Basidiomycetes, Fungi) of which these genera are the only known members.
The purpose of the American Standard for Nursery Stock (ANSI Z60.1) is to provide buyers and sellers of nursery stock with a common terminology in order to facilitate transactions involving nursery stock. For instance, the standards establish common techniques for (a) measuring plants, (b) specifying and stating the size of plants, (c) determining the proper relationship between height and caliper, or height and width, and (d) determining whether a root ball or container is large enough for a particular size plant. As a Free PDF download.
The focus of this site is on angiosperms, although treatments of gymnosperm groups were added in 2005
ANTHOS is a program developed to display information about the biodiversity of plants in Spain online. The geographical scope of the project is the Iberian Peninsula, the Balearic Islands and the Canarian Islands as a representation of biogeographic units so as to study the distribution of one or more taxa throughout national and surrounding areas.

The Atlas provides detailed information on 105 species or subspecies of wild Guatemalan plants that are related to crops, including their description, distribution, diversity and conservation status. The species are organized into genepools corresponding to the 29 crops that were chosen for this study because of their economic, cultural and biological importance.
Users of the ALA website can combine species distribution information with mapping tools, identification keys, photos, names lists, sensitive data service (coming) and published literature.
a documented Checklist of the seed plants of this national park. Such a database would provide scientists and other users who have interest in plants of Cuc Phuong National Park, and of Vietnam in general, with a comprehensive searchable database of the seed plants found in the park. Since only a few species of gymnosperms are found growing in this park, the bulk of the database comprises the angiosperms (flowering plants).
This web site is based on the list published by J.H. Willis, D. Pearson, M.T. Davis, and J.W. Green, Western Australian Herbarium Research Notes Number 12, August 1986. That original list has been supplemented by additional entries and some updates of dates, especially where people have died since that publication. Links to biographical notes and portraits have been added for many entries.
Various Austrian publishers attempting to make publicly available the published knowledge of science as PDF or citations public. Beginning in 2012, in collaboration with the Geological Survey, a large collection of geo-scientific journals is introduced, the original source is available at opac.geologie.ac.at. Also in 2012, through a partnership with the Academy of Sciences, many additional scientific works are offered. Many authors linked to bio-information and bibliographic data are available, which are managed in the database ZOBODAT www.zobodat.at.
This virtual catalog brings together all the autographical identification cards of botanists published in the journal Candollea from 1972 to 1979.
