  • Guide to the plant species descriptions published in seed lists from Botanic Gardens for the period 1800-1900"Electronic and interactive guide [by Cees Lut in ccoperation with Jan Frits Veldkamp, National Herbarium Nederland] to descriptions of new plant species published in seed lists." "Botanical Gardens have produced for a long time annual seed lists for exchange. In some European ones of the 19th century it was customary to include diagnoses, descriptions, and notes either in footnotes or in appendices. These lists were printed in a very limited edition and past issues generally were not kept." This site makes available, "the original descriptions in a searchable database, with the title page of the seed list and its date of publication or an estimate thereof, and the current nomenclatural status of these names (but not their present taxonomic identity)".

"BioLIS weist über 75.000 Artikel aus biologischen Zeitschriften und Reihen nach. Insgesamt wurden über 1.000 verschiedene Zeitschriften und Reihen ausgewertet".

  • Electronic Sites of Leading Botany, Plant Biology and Science Journals"links to journals in which articles concerning plant biology are published. The sites will almost always have a Tables of Contents available free and may frequently have selected articles, or the entire text online".

  • The Index to American Botanical Literature "has provided a service to the American botanical community for over a century ... The Index is compiled from resources of The LuEsther T. Mertz Library of The New York Botanical Garden and contains entries dealing with various aspects of extant and fossil American plants and fungi, including systematics (traditional and molecular) and floristics, morphology, and ecology, as well as economic botany and general botany (publications dealing with botanists, herbaria, etc.). The searchable database includes all those entries published in the Index since 1996, and thus includes botanical literature appearing since late 1995. The database is updated on a regular basis. Retroactive indexing of previously published entries is envisioned."

  • Recent Literature on Lichens "is a series published in The Bryologist, a journal of The American Bryological and Lichenological Society.
