The PLANTS Database is a single source of standardized information about plants. This database focuses on vascular plants, mosses, liverworts, hornworts, and lichens of the U.S. and its territories. The PLANTS Database includes names, checklists, automated tools, identification information, species abstracts, distributional data, crop information, plant symbols, plant growth data, plant materials information, plant links, references, and other plant information.
The Plants Database provides an excellent source for information on thousands of plants. For example, there are more than 12,000 plants listed for the state of Oklahoma. The site provides scientific and common names and classification from kingdom through species. Many of the plants also have images of the stem, leaves, flowers, whole plant, etc. for identification purposes. Almost all images have a high-resolution option which is great for showing the plant images on a large screen in the classroom. As a faculty member, I've used this site many times in my Introduciton to Plant Science class/lab for plant identification. I highly recommend this site!
