This online database provides integrated access to data on the plants of The Morton Arboretum living collections and herbarium, as well as to our interactive collections map, scanned herbarium sheets, and photographs of living plants. This dataset encompasses more than 222,000 live plants representing nearly 4,300 taxa and nearly 60,000 databased herbarium specimens. The system represents an accumulation of living plant and herbarium information dating back to the founding of the Arboretum in 1922.
This exhibit offers a look at the history of seed and nursery catalogues in Europe and the United States, exploring items from the Nursery and Seed Trade Catalogues collection, held in Special Collections, Oregon State University Libraries.
The database "Seeds of Brazil" was created primarily to provide data of the gray literature ("gray literature"), ie the scientific literature with difficult access and limited disclosure as per examples: Annals of Congresses and Symposia, Papers, Dissertations and Theses. Currently, 1247 references are registered in "Seeds of Brazil." Perform queries on the bench "Seeds of Brazil."
The OSU Seed and Nursery Trade catalogue collection contains over 2,000 items from 1832 to 1966. While the collection is most comprehensive in its representation of American catalogues from the 1940s, it contains many older examples from North America, Great Britain, and Holland, as well other European and Asian countries.
SIBIS provides access to over 1.6 million occurrence records and comprehensive coverage of South Africa’s 22 000+ plant species. Animal species are being added as they become available.
Web Soil Survey (WSS) provides soil data and information produced by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. It is operated by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and provides access to the largest natural resource information system in the world.
List of Soil Surveys by State This Web site lists soil surveys that have been published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture since 1899. Soil surveys furnish soil maps and interpretations needed in giving technical assistance to farmers and ranchers; in guiding decisions about soil selection, use, and management; and in planning research and disseminating the results of research. The surveys also are used in educational programs about soil use and conservation.
The second edition of Soil Taxonomy, A Basic System of Soil Classification for Making and Interpreting Soil Surveys is now available here in PDF format for printing or viewing.
Several databases citing several accessions of one species, acquired from different sources. The accessions are documented by collecting herbarium material, photography, etc. and, together with the passport data including verification, source and conservation data,are stored in the main Solanaceae database of the Experimental Garden and Genebank. Authority abbreviations with respect to plant names are used according to R.K. Brummit and C.E. Powell.
Solanaceae Source aims to produce a worldwide taxonomic monograph of all species in the genus Solanum.
Each name in the following list of naturalists is linked to a corresponding capsule "chrono-biographical" sketch of that individual prepared by the authors. Coverage extends from approximately 1950 backward in time as far as the eighteenth century; figures from all over the world are included (though there is admittedly a decided Anglo-American bias). The target subject here is biogeography, but this being a broad field there are many persons on the list who are better known as climatologists, zoologists, botanists, ecologists, oceanographers, paleontologists, etc.--in other words, who made their main reputations in cognate disciplines.
The Public Registry is the source for news, information, and documents related to species at risk in Canada.
The web pages about Costa Rican species are electronic publications that provide basic information on the species of different groups of organisms found in Costa Rica. The scientific information is presented in a simple technical language. The resulting publications include photos and illustrations, information about natural history, conservation and demography, distribution, importance for humankind, taxonomy, and references. Almost all the information is written in Spanish.
Species-ID is dedicated to the description and identification of life on earth. Identification means to have an unknown organism at hand and to correctly infer the scientific name for it. Species-ID offers a friendly platform for widespread collaborations. The founders of Species-ID believe in the power of sharing and collaborating. The charter of Species-ID aims to reduce the need to set up little boxes by providing a space able to support general as well as specific content and bring the community interested in species identification closer together.
speciesLink is a distributed information system that integrates primary data from biological collections. speciesLink network, an e-infrastructure that provides free and open access to biodiversity primary data and associated tools. SpeciesLink currently integrates 382 datasets from 135 national institutions and 13 institutions from abroad, openly sharing ~7.4 million records.
