Web Site of the Week: USDA: Plants Database

The United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources
Conservation Service has created this remarkable database to provide
standardized information about the vascular plants, mosses, liverworts,
hornworts, and lichens of the United States and its territories. As there
is a wealth of information here, first-time visitors may wish to start with
the I Want to… area. Here they can make their way through shortcuts that
include “See a list of the plants in my state” or “Search for and view
images of plants.” On the left-hand side of the page, visitors can look
over topics that include Cover Crops, Documentation, and Culturally
Significant. Moving on, the News area contains links to newly released
resources, such as the annual National Wetland Plant List and the plant
hardiness map. Of course, visitors should not miss the Image Gallery, which
contains over 40,000 plant images available for general use. [KMG]
