If you're looking for articles and books on plants or fungi, check out the bibliography of American botanical literature available at the New York Botanical Garden's newly spruced-up site. The database's nearly 39,000 entries include references from as far back as 1886. A project the garden began 4 years ago (NetWatch, 29 October 1999, p. 867) has also come to fruition. You can now consult more than 85,000 images of type specimens—the original samples taxonomists used to describe a species—such as a magnolia leaf (Magnolia roraimae) collected in Venezuela in 1944.
