Global Plants

Cambridge University Library is delighted to inform readers of a new subscription to Global Plants from JSTOR, formerly known as JSTOR Plant Science.

Global Plants can be accessed on and off campus via this link.

The largest of its kind, Global Plants is a community-contributed database that features more than two million high resolution plant type specimen images and other foundational materials from the collections of hundreds of herbaria around the world.

It is an essential resource for institutions supporting research and teaching in botany, ecology, and conservation studies. Through Global Plants, herbaria can share specimens, experts can determine and update naming structures, students can discover and learn about plants in context, and a record of plant life can be preserved for future generations.
