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.
World Economic Plants in GRIN is based on "World Economic Plants: A Standard Reference" (John H. Wiersema and Blanca León 1999). This publication provides essential reference data in a concise and readily accessible format for over 9,500 vascular plants of commercial importance in various parts of the world. It makes available to both scientists and nonscientists up-to-date scientific names for economically important vascular plants. It includes information garnered during more than two decades of nomenclatural research on economic plants by taxonomists of the Agricultural Research Service of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA-ARS). ...

The central aim of Plant Cultures is to convey the richness and complexity of links between Britain and South Asia, through the story of plants and people. It is aimed at anyone interested in understanding the world around them. Britain and the Indian subcontinent have had an immense impact on each other, from the early traders and travellers of the 17th century, to the East India Company and British Empire, and then to independence and population movements in the 20th century. Much of this story is intimately bound up with plants, whether as trade commodities, food, or as subjects for artistic and religious expression. It’s a relationship that continues to be important today. Asian food, medicine, religion, music and film have all had a big impact on Britain’s cultural landscape. The Plant Cultures project covers both the historical and contemporary aspects of Britain and South Asia. Some topics will be familiar – the British Empire, Asian cooking and mehndi (henna painting). Some will be less familiar to many – the ancient traditions of South Asian art and medicine, or the role of sacred plants such as holy basil. The Plant Cultures website brings together a wide range of resources: historic images from museums and libraries, well researched information, contributions from members of the public, and carefully chosen links to other web resources. ...
