Developed by the National Museums and Galleries of Northern Ireland and the Environment and Heritage Service, the Flora of Northern Ireland is an artful online guide for plant distribution data and species descriptions (many accompanied by beautiful photos). Site visitors can search for plant descriptions by common or scientific name, family name (common or scientific), and plant group. Plant descriptions can be located by browsing the Full Species List as well. The site also organizes plant species by protected plant status, and by habitat. The distribution data is based on 10 x 10 km grid squares, and the site provides a map tool allowing visitors to obtain plant distribution information by specific grids plotted across Northern Ireland. In addition, the Flora website offers links to related organizations and resources.
