JSTOR Plant Science now available

The Library now has access (initially until May 2012) to JSTOR Plant Science.  This is an online environment that brings together content, tools, and people interested in plant science.

It provides access to foundational content vital to plant science – plant type specimens, taxonomic structures, scientific literature, and related materials, making them widely accessible to the plant science community as well as to researchers in other fields and to the public. It also provides an easy to use interface with powerful functionality that supports research and teaching, including the ability to measure and record plant specimens, share observations and objects with colleagues and classmates, and investigate global plant biodiversity.

JSTOR Plant Science strives to be a comprehensive online research tool for aggregating and exploring the world’s botanical resources, thereby dramatically improving access for students, scholars, and scientists around the globe. It is useful for those researching, teaching or studying botany, biology, ecology, environmental and conservation studies.

To access the resource, please search the Library Catalogue for JSTOR Plant Science and click on the URL in the record.
