The Plant Atlas Project
The Digital Plant Atlas is an international project that makes a unique contribution to the identification of seeds, fruits, roots, tubers, bulbs, stem fragments, leaves, flowers, buds and resins. The plant parts are illustrated with high-quality colour photographs and accompanied by a scale and their scientific name. The local names in various languages are included in an index. In 2006, the Digital Seed Atlas of the Netherlands appeared. In 2010, the Digital Atlas of Economic Plants was published and the Digital Atlas of Economic Plants in Archaeology will be next. More information about these books and the project can be found on the websites of the Digital Plant Atlas:
