About the Photo Gallery

This Photo Gallery contains over 9,700 photographs illustrating the diagnostic characters of (and variability within) the vascular plant families covered in the textbook Plant Systematics, Fourth Edition. Represented here are over 5,000 species from almost 300 families. Many species are represented by multiple photographs showing different views of the plant, its flowers, its fruits, its vegetative characteristics, and its habit, as well as many images showing floral and fruit dissections. The Photo Gallery also includes an illustrated glossary of plant terminology.
