We have built up a substantial collection of plant photographs and continue to add more. These were all taken by the author of Plant Base over a period of many years. The photos are organised by botanical names, which are are correct as far we know.
Virtually all photographs were taken with digital cameras, apart from a few very old ones that were scanned from film. Image quality and size vary due to the age of the images. With the improved capability of digital cameras some of the old photos are repaced from time to time with better ones. We are continuously adding to the collection and replacing older images.
In our software products we also use photographs that have been contributed by other people, for which we are very grateful.
