Catalog of the living collections of The New York Botanical Garden
The Index contains entries dealing with various aspects of extant and fossil American plants and fungi, including systematics and floristics, morphology, and ecology, as well as economic botany and general botany; "America" is defined in the broadest possible sense, encompassing land and marine plants and fungi from Greenland to Antarctica. American territory outside this area, e.g., Hawaii, is not included.

BGCI organises congresses to enable botanic gardens to share experiences and information in plant conservation. The Proceedings of past congresses are made available to the public on our website. BGCI articles relating to past congresses, stored in our Journal Archives, are displayed on the right hand side of our page.
The Biodiversity Heritage Library-Australia is the digital literature component of the Atlas of Living Australia. Increase the exposure of Australian literature, e.g. by linking BHL-Au to national catalogues, such as the National Library of Australia’s Trove. Scope and undertake new digitisation projects to add new Australian-published literature, or rare literature held in Australian libraries
The project aims to digitize and make available via the internet a library of rare books from the Library of the National Museum, UFRJ. These collections are a heritage of undisputed reference in the areas of natural and anthropological sciences.

Dryad is an international repository of data underlying peer-reviewed articles in the basic and applied biosciences. Dryad enables scientists to validate published findings, explore new analysis methodologies, repurpose data for research questions unanticipated by the original authors, and perform synthetic studies. Dryad is governed by a consortium of journals that collaboratively promote data archiving and ensure the sustainability of the repository.
This database began life as a repository of information for projects on New Zealand weeds, and wetland plants. It holds a list of all native and all naturalised higher plant species. Most effort to date has been on entering data on the naturalised flora and this information is updated from time to time. The ecological trait data covers world and local distributional data, morphological, reproduction, and other attributes that influence species' environmental responses, and interactions with other plants and animals. Attributes relevant to weed management such as response to damage, reproduction capacity, seed longevity, and weed status elsewhere are included. The database does not capture information on weed control methods. Data are derived from publications and databases on the the New Zealand Floras and many other publications.

The National Wetland Plant List (NWPL) represents a collaborative effort between four Federal agencies, under the administrative responsibilities of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to update and administer the national list. In a several-year effort, the NWPL was updated for nomenclature, taxonomy, and wetland ratings for 8,154 species across the United States and territories. The wetland ratings represent the frequency of occurrence of a plant species in a wetland and are used in direct support of the Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, the Swampbuster provisions under the Farm Bill, and the National Wetland Inventory Program.

The database of the Original Linnaean Dissertations, compiled by Tancin and based on a handlist prepared by Bridson, includes in each entry the Lidén number, respondent, title, date of defense, pagination, short title, Lidén title, Soulsby title, Drake title and note

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.
