The Gentian Research Network is a free, not-for-profit, web-based forum for worldwide research on the natural history and evolution of the flowering plant family Gentianaceae (gentians). Here you will find information on current research projects in the Gentianaceae, focusing on their systematics, evolution, molecular systematics, classification (Struwe et al. 2002 or most current), ecology, biogeography, endangered species, biodiversity, distribution, anatomy, morphology, palynology, ethnobotany, and nomenclature. We also have a link to a large reference list, floristic works, images, research projects, and contact information for researchers and photographers.
The Global Flora is a new international serial for botanical taxonomy, to provide accepted species-level classifications for all vascular plant families. The serial has three series: (A) Angiosperms (following APG IV, 2016); (B) Lycopods, Ferns and Gymnosperms (classification following Christenhusz et al., 2017); and (C) special editions. The first two series will only treat monophyletic taxa on a global scale (e.g. family, subfamily, tribe, genus or section). The special editions series aims to make significant contributions to the body of plant systematic knowledge and typically will be of a global botanical scope.
The Global Names Architecture (GNA) is a system of databases, programs, and web services - a cyberinfrastructure - that will be used to discover, index, organize and interconnect on-line information about organisms and their names.
identify over 1,200 common native and naturalized New England plants! Observe closely, collect a sample or take a photo, answer some questions, and narrow down to the correct identification.
