JSTOR - Global Plants Collection

Visit the JSTOR database to access the Global Plants collection, which is built in collaboration with libraries, herbaria, archives, museums, and universities to present information on "75% of the world's biodiversity". You can search by plant name, geography, herbarium, or resource type (artifacts, books, and drawings).

The Plant Science collection offers access to botanical resources from around the world. You can view research articles, plant type specimens, foundational reference books, and more than 20,000 botanical illustrations and photographs.
