Phytozome is the Plant Comparative Genomics portal of the Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute. Families of related genes representing the modern descendants of ancestral genes are constructed at key phylogenetic nodes. These families allow easy access to clade-specific orthology/paralogy relationships as well as insights into clade-specific novelties and expansions. As of release v10, Phytozome provides access to forty-eight sequenced and annotated green plant genomes which have been clustered into gene families at 12 evolutionarily significant nodes.
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.

CBOL’s mission is to promote the exploration and development of DNA barcoding as a global standard for species identification.
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 main purpose of BioStor is to find articles in the Biodiversity Heritage Library. BioStor provides tools for extracting, annotating, and visualising literature from the Biodiversity Heritage Library (and other sources).
Charles Darwin’s Library is a digital edition and virtual reconstruction of the surviving books owned by Charles Darwin. This BHL special collection draws on original copies and surrogates from other libraries. It also provides full transcriptions of his annotations and marks.
This website contains over 100,000 pages of searchable text and 214,000 electronic images, at least one exemplar of all known Darwin publications, reproduced to the highest scholarly standards, both as searchable text and electronic images of the originals. The majority of these have been edited and annotated here for the first time with more than 4,800 original editorial notes.

Some 100 governmental and non-governmental organizations are collaborating through GEO BON to make their biodiversity data, information and forecasts more readily accessible to policymakers, managers, experts and other users.
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.
The purpose of this glossary is to provide definitions that are used in the descriptions and keys of this and other web sites.
The International Plant Names Index (IPNI) is a database of the names and associated basic bibliographical details of seed plants, ferns and fern allies.
to create an easily accessible database with reliable information on species names and their hierarchical classification. The database will be reviewed periodically to ensure high quality with valid classifications, revisions, and additions of newly described species. The ITIS includes documented taxonomic information of flora and fauna from both aquatic and terrestrial habitats.
Legumes of the World Online (LOWO) advances the knowledge and understanding of the approximately 750 genera of the legume family. LOWO is based upon the book “Legumes of the World” which is transformed here into a web resource offering expanded and updated information about legume genera. The Legume Research Team at RBG Kew manages and updates LOWO through collaboration with an international community of legume systematic botanists. Users of LOWO can browse and search for information about legume genera through the traditional subfamily-tribe-genus hierarchy or within a modern phylogeny-based classification.
The New York Flora Atlas is a source of information for the distribution of plants within the state, as well as information on plant habitats, associated ecological communities, and taxonomy. In addition, users can learn about the location of vouchered specimens and see images to get a better visual for each plant.
Originally published as part of the Index to Scientific Names of Organisms Cited in the Linnaean Dissertations together with a Synoptic Bibliography of the Dissertations and a Concordance for Selected Editions (Robert W. Kiger, Charlotte A. Tancin and Gavin D. R. Bridson, 1999). 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
You can use this site to find out about fossil collections, individual plants and animals, taxonomic groups, references to publications, stratigraphic units, time scales, and time intervals.
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.
The PLANTS Database provides standardized information about the vascular plants, mosses, liverworts, hornworts, and lichens of the U.S. and its territories.
