The goal of VASCAN is to provide an up-to-date, documented source of the names of vascular plants in Canada, Greenland, and Saint Pierre and Miquelon, both scientific and vernacular.
The data presented here are taken from the publication Vascular Plant Families and Genera compiled by R. K. Brummitt and published by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in 1992.
This dataset lists the vascular plants found in a region of central New York State extending from 42 N to 43 N, and 76 W to 77 W (the USGS "Cayuga Quadrangle"), plus a small area north of 43 degrees in the "Cayuga Lake Basin" of early published floras. This multi-county area extends from the Pennsylvania border to north of the Finger Lakes, and from Seneca Lake eastward to just west of Binghamton.
Approximately 90,563 vascular plant type specimens from the New York Botanical Garden Herbarium.
This project aims to document all the vascular plants of a region that is key to the understanding of plant biodiversity and plant conservation in the Neotropics. We will also assess which plant species are most important for conservation.

The USGS Vegetation Characterization Program is a cooperative effort by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Park Service Inventory & Monitoring - Vegetation Mapping Program to classify, describe, and map vegetation communities in more than 280 national park units across the United States.
This site is intended as a tool to foster the sharing of information pertaining to historical horticulture and to promote the preservation of significant commercially released and family heirloom cultivars.
provides better access to the special subject collection Biology, Botany, Zoology, primarily through German Research libraries
We are in the process of digitizing our collections, which should enable international users to have quick access to botanical collections from the herbaria B, BAK, BRNU, CHER, ERE, FT, GAT, GJO, GZU, HAL, HERZ JE, KFTA, KUFS, LAGU, LECB, LW, LWKS, LWS, LZ, MJG, OLD, PRC, TBI, TGU, W and WU. It is our main goal to provide a unified and jointly administered specimen management system for the participating herbaria. Special attention is paid to providing images for all material online and especially high resolution images for type collections.
The BGBM offers on-line access to 218155 specimen records with 152967 high-resolution images from 230 countries from its herbarium holdings.
The WWW Virtual Library (VL) is the oldest catalogue of the Web, started by Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of HTML and of the Web itself, in 1991 at CERN in Geneva. Unlike commercial catalogues, it is run by a loose confederation of volunteers, who compile pages of key links for particular areas in which they are expert; even though it isn't the biggest index of the Web, the VL pages are widely recognised as being amongst the highest-quality guides to particular sections of the Web.
