Links to Other Sources of Information



Atlas of Florida Vascular Plants

 The Atlas of Florida Vascular Plants provides a source of information for the distribution of plants within the state, including photographs and specimen scans of most species.
 
Florida, with over 4,200 species of native or naturalized ferns and seed plants, is the third most floristically diverse state in the United States. The Atlas of Florida Vascular Plants is a joint effort by the Institute for Systematic Botany, the University of South Florida and the Florida Center for Community Design + Research to provide users with a comprehensive searchable database of vascular plants in the State of Florida.


BugGuide.Net

 An online community of naturalists who enjoy learning about and sharing their observations of insects, spiders, and other related creatures.
 
Identification, images, and information for insects, spiders and their kin for the United States and Canada.


Florida Native Plant Society

 The purpose of the Florida Native Plant Society is to promote the preservation, conservation, and restoration of the native plants and native plant communities in Florida.
 
FNPS is an excellent organization to be involved with if you want to learn about Florida native plants. With over 30 local chapters around the state and an annual statewide conference, Florida has one of the leading native plant societies in the country.


NatureServe Explorer

 An online encyclopedia of life, NatureServe Explorer is an authoritative source for information on more than 70,000 plants, animals, and ecosystems of the United States and Canada.
 
Search species and/or ecological communities & systems by name, taxonomy, location, or conservation status. Explorer includes particularly in-depth coverage for rare and endangered species.


University of Tennessee Herbarium

 A number of photographs by Paul Rebmann appear at the University of Tennessee online Vascular Plant Herbarium.
 
The taxonomic emphasis of the vascular plant collection is reflected in the historically broad interests of the TENN staff and students in floristics and phytogeography. In general, the collection may be best described as one with a strong emphasis on widespread and/or temperate taxa. Even though the collection houses representative specimens of the world's flora, it is unique in having the largest collection of specimens from the state of Tennessee, the historical collections documenting the flora of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (a World Biosphere Reserve), and the large, general collection from throughout the southern Appalachians. Significant and representative collections are also present from the remainder of the U. S., including Alaska, Central and South America, and the Old World.


Wildflowers of the Southeastern United States

 Here you will find images and information on hundreds of wild plants found in the southeast.
