The first international "Fascination of Plants Day" (May 18th 2012) will be launched under the umbrella of the European Plant Science Organisation. The goal of this activity is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science. vifabio is supporting this campaign by collecting the most important internet sources together for you.
You will find more biological web resources in our Internet Guide - a catalogue of annotated and evaluated internet sites.
The Families of Flowering Plants: included are family synonyms; comprehensive information on numbers of species and genera in each family, and complete lists of the genera in each; the complete classifications, to the level of Order, of Dahlgren (1980), Cronquist (1981) and Takhtajan (1980) for Dicots, and of Dahlgren, Clifford and Yeo (1985) for Monocots, and the APG classification (1999, 2003). Extensive illustrations of both taxa and characters are available via Intkey (interactive key). ... [Information of the supplier, modified]
The systematic collection of plant iconography would be an invaluable resource to researchers, providing significant information on taxonomy, crop history and evolution, lost traits, and genetic diversity. Plant Image is a searchable database of plant images, focusing on the Cucurbitaceae and Solanaceae. Searches have been made from various sources including art (mosaics, paintings, and sculpture), illustrated manuscripts, and hand illustrated and printed herbals and books. We are concentrating our search on antiquity (Old and New World), medieval, and Renaissance sources but we intend to include more recent images as well. Bibliographic information on primary and secondary sources will be associated with each image and, in the case of herbals, associated text material will eventually be included. We hope to receive images and information from all persons interested in the Cucurbitaceae and Solanaceae, so that the database will be a living, dynamic document. ... [Information of the supplier]
The InsideWood project integrates wood anatomical information from the literature and original observations into an internet-accessible database useful for research and teaching. The InsideWood database contains brief descriptions of woody dicots (hardwoods) from more than 200 plant families, and is searchable by an interactive, multiple-entry key. The InsideWood collection has 5,686 descriptions and 28,576 images. ... [Information of the supplier]
This Checklist gives information on the accepted scientific names and synonyms of monocot plants. It allows you to search for all the scientific names of a particular plant, or the areas of the world in which it grows (distribution). The checklist aims to provide data on all monocots by 2006. In this first release a limited amount of families have been made available (view list of included families). ... [Information of the supplier]
eMonocot aims to create a global online resource for monocot plants. It will provide a focus for taxonomists working on monocots and will help people discover information about monocots by providing tools for identification, up-to-date checklists, descriptions and links to other resources.

Welcome to the 6th International Conference on Comparative Biology of Monocotyledons – Monocots VI, also featuring the 2nd World Congress of Bromeliaceae Evolution – Bromevo II and the 7th International Symposium on Grass Systematics and Evolution. Under the motto Monocots for all: bringing the whole from its parts we welcome researchers from different fields of investigation to participate in the Monocots VI Conference. This meeting will be held in Praiamar Natal Hotel & Convention Center, in the tropical tourist-friendly city of Natal, Northeastern Brazil, from October 7th-12th, 2018. The Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN) will promote the event, which is sponsored by the Brazilian National Counsel of Technological and Scientific Development (Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico – CNPq). The Monocots conference is a major event in the area of botany, biodiversity conservation, and plant biotechnology, being held every 5 years. This is the first time that Latin America host such important meeting, this time promoted by a multidisciplinary group of professors from UFRN university and external board of counselors. ...

The Ginkgo pages are about the tree Ginkgo biloba and all its aspects. I created this site because of my fascination and respect for this unique tree, a living fossil, unchanged since the time of the dinosaurs. It is the sole living link between the lower and higher plants, a symbol of longevity and is seen as one of the wonders of this world. Maybe you are fascinated too after reading my site. ...

The Herbarium of The New York Botanical Garden has completed cataloging its gymnosperms from North America north of Mexico. These records represent those specimens collected in Greenland, Canada, and the United States (excluding Hawaii), and include non-native species cultivated in North America. Records of the following families are available for searching: Araucariaceae, Cephalotaxaceae, Cupressaceae, Ginkgoaceae, Pinaceae, Podocarpaceae, Taxaceae. ... [Information of the supplier]
Currently the Database provides basic information (sometimes only a name) for all species and higher-ranked taxa of the gymnosperms, i.e., conifers, cycads, and their allies. You enter the taxonomic tree at the Family level and then navigate to the Genus, Species or sometimes Variety levels. At each level, information on the taxon at hand is provided, along with bibliographic citations that will take you to more detailed information about the taxon. Navigation through the taxonomic tree is achieved with the help of Forms. (...) The database is also supported by a search engine, accessed on the home page. If you only know a species' common name, for example, or want to know where turpentine comes from, then the search engine is invaluable. ... [Information of the supplier]
