Publisher: Chicago Botanic Garden
Field Museum of Natural History
Morton Arboretum
Description: Three institutions in the Chicago region have created the vPlants database, which allows interested web-surfing parties to browse through various data from 90,000 plant specimens. Even more impressive is the fact that users can also view digital images for almost 50,000 of the specimens. From the well-designed homepage, visitors can search for plant names by family, genus, or common name. Additionally, visitors can browse a glossary of terms and a set of external links. The database brings the plant life of the region to life through its mix of visual materials and well-written descriptions. Neophyte botanists will appreciate its accessibility, and more experienced persons can find items of use here as well.
