The United States Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service has created this remarkable database to provide standardized information about the vascular plants, mosses, liverworts, hornworts, and lichens of the United States and its territories. As there is a wealth of information here, first-time visitors may wish to start with the I Want to… area. Here they can make their way through shortcuts that include "See a list of the plants in my state" or "Search for and view images of plants." On the left-hand side of the page, visitors can look over topics that include Cover Crops, Documentation, and Culturally Significant. Moving on, the News area contains links to newly released resources, such as the annual National Wetland Plant List and the plant hardiness map. Of course, visitors should not miss the Image Gallery, which contains over 40,000 plant images available for general use.
