Plant Systematics Collection


Updated June 16, 2006

Introduction / Instructions

This web site provides structured access to a teaching collection of plant images representing over 250 families and 1500 genera of vascular plants. This collection is now organized in recognition of recent molecular data using currently acceptated families and orders. The collection includes significant contributions from individuals outside of the University of Wisconsin System. This cooperative venture was coordinated by Dr. Dennis Woodland, professor at Andrews University at Berrien Springs, MI. The set is a subset of the one available on the compact disc, ''Photo Atlas of the Vascular Plants''. The third edition will include a collection of over 8,500 images representing 277 families and 1,600 genera of vascular plants. The work is published through the Botany Department at the University of Wisconsin, and is included with Dr. Woodland's book, ''Contemporary Plant Systematics, ed. 3 '' (Andrews University Press).


Images may be freely copied for non-distributed educational use without permission. Inclusion of any of these images in a distributed work (this includes published or networked) requires written permission from the individual owner of any given image (see contributors). However, users may freely link to our collection.
