Global Plants Database
Global Plants (formerly the JSTOR Plants Science beta) is the world’s largest centralized, community- contributed database developed through a partnership— known as the Global Plants Initiative (GPI). It aggregates type specimens online so the plant scientist can access collections at herbaria without having to travel to the repositories where they are housed; or having to borrow them on loan. Online access allows for better collaboration and communication among researchers. It also reduces the physical handling of the types and thus reduces their wear and tear, or destruction or even complete loss when in transit when on loan. Trial ends June 20th.
