Live Plants Image Database
images of Louisiana's plants
These images, in addition to other detailed images of plant parts, can also be used to learn taxonomic characteristics, to recognize taxonomic groups, and to document character variation. These types of images are valuable for developing visual taxonomic keys that are less reliant on difficult terminology but use images of features instead. This allows much more rapid identification of species and provides a tool for a much wider audience.
