Plant Systematics Collection

About this collection



Introduction / Instructions

This web site provides structured access to a teaching collection of plant images representing over 250 families and 1000 genera of vascular plants. One link, Access by Phylum, provides access to plant images based on the Gleason and Cronquist taxonomic system. The page includes a list of eight phyla (for this site, we treat the cycads, vessel-bearing gymnosperms, and ginkgos as phyla). Each phylum page is linked to pages which are hierarchically nested corresponding to taxa in that phylum. The page at the lowest level of each nested hierarchy will have links to our web-based image collection at the genus level.
