A plant type specimen resource drawn from digitized journals in the JSTOR database, reference books, the Kew Garden's Directors' correspondence (including hand-written letters and memoranda from senior Kew staff 1841-1928) and other sources.
Much of the content originates with the Global Plants Initiative, an international undertaking by libraries and herbaria to digitise plant type specimens and other holdings used by botanists. GPI partners include more than 147 institutions in 52 countries.
This database was previously known as JSTOR Plant Science.
Over 600,000 specimens are currently available; it is estimated that the database will have about 2.2 million specimens on completion of the project.
