Global Plants Named "Best Niche Database" of 2014
Library Journal readers nominated Global Plants as "best niche database" of 2014!

Here's what the magazine had to say:

JSTOR’s gorgeous Global Plants is the work of a worldwide team. Offering a repository in which “herbaria can share their plant type specimens, experts can determine and update naming structures, [and] students can discover and learn about plants in context,” the data­base draws upon the work of 91 U.S. and 200-plus foreign facilities. As well as a growing collection of two million high-resolution plant images, users can access reference works on botany and primary-source material such as collectors’ correspondence, paintings, drawings, and photographs. LJ’s Henrietta Verma notes that the attractive images document species that may soon be lost to the world, others that are new to scientific description, and still more that are noteworthy simply for their beauty or usefulness. Most impressive, Verma finds, is the cooperative nature of the work, which has rapidly produced a valuable corpus of images.
