Australian Plant Image Index

Project Website
Project Description
The Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG) has for many years been building up a collection of photographs and illustrations of Australia's native plants.

Originally these were photos taken on field collecting trips to supplement the herbarium specimens and data associated with the living plants. In recent years many other photographers have contributed to the Index.

We are now embarking on an active plan to encourage people to contribute reliably identified photographs to the Index.

Our aim is to have a good quality coloured slide of every Australian native plant represented in the Australian Plant Image Index.
