JSTOR Global Plants

Alternative Titles
JSTOR Plant Science
Description

JSTOR Global Plants (formerly JSTOR Plant Science) is a community-contributed database where worldwide herbaria can share their plant type specimens, experts can determine and update naming structures, students can discover and learn about plants in context, and a record of plant life can be preserved for future generations. Global Plants contains the contributed collections of more than 300 herbaria from around the globe. There are nearly two million high-resolution type specimens currently in the Global Plants database, and this number will continue to grow. Researchers and students can also access reference works and primary sources--such as collectors' correspondence and diaries, paintings, drawings, and photographs--contributed by partners.
