The Institute is in the process of formatting for the Web existing databases of the information contained in its collections and publications. Through the databases we hope to offer the global community greater access to our information.
BPH Online is a fully indexed and searchable database documenting (as comprehensively as possible) periodicals published between 1665 and the present that have addressed the plant sciences.
Information about the artwork in the fully catalogued Art collection is accessible in this database to which images are being added.
Digitized artwork in the Art collection that is in the public domain can be downloaded for publication from this database.
Hunt Institute’s Library collection is included in the Carnegie Mellon University Libraries’ online catalogue.
Originally published as the Categorical Glossary for the Flora of North America Project (2001), the database covers a high proportion of the total complement of structures, characters, and character states pertinent to detailed conventional description of the morphology and higher-level anatomy of plants other than algae. The database contains 2,627 terms with their synonyms, categories, limitations and definitions, and can be searched by one or more of these fields.
Comprehensive Scheme for Standardized Abbreviation of Usable Plant-Family Names and Type-Based Suprafamilial Names
This database lists a scheme of four-character abbreviations for all properly usable plant-family names known to have been published to date, and of two-character rank suffixes for coordinated abbreviation of type-based names at standard suprafamilial ranks.
This index lists the binomials cited in the first edition of Carolus Linnaeus' Species Plantarum. The database contains the following fields, Genus, Epithet and Page Number.
Originally published as part of the Index to Scientific Names of Organisms Cited in the Linnaean Dissertations together with a Synoptic Bibliography of the Dissertations and a Concordance for Selected Editions (1999), the database of the Index to Scientific Names is a reference resource on these dissertations and the scientific names that appear in them.
The database includes PDFs of the original Linnaean dissertations, English summaries and brief bibliographic records compiled from reference sources.
