Educational Resources:

American Society of Plant Biologists: Education
ASPB is active in promoting plant biology education through the creation of programs, fellowships, and curriculum. The Education Committee and the Education Foundation of ASPB make these resources available to promote the teaching and learning of science using plants and to encourage plant biology as a career choice. A list of resources available for K-12, Undergraduate, Graduate, and Faculty.

Our objective is to promote the creation of fresh, attention-getting and informative video content about plant life and to make the best of these videos easy to find from a single website. This is intended to serve the general public and educators at all levels.  We hope this video competition and website will stimulate more creative and innovative ways to present and learn about plant biology.

Planting Science
Planting Science is a learning and research resource, bringing together students, plant scientists, and teachers from across the nation. Students engage in hands-on plant investigations, working with peers and scientist mentors to build collaborations and to improve their understanding of science.

Image Databases:

Botany Photo of the Day
Hosted by the University of British Colombia Botanical Garden and Center for Plant Research, this website offers a new, stunning botanical images several times a week. Each entry is accompanied by a detailed description and discussion.

University of Colorado – Plant Biology Flickr Pages
Students from the plant biology classes offered at the University of Colorado, Boulder upload images from their laboratory exercises to this Flickr collection. Images are organized by year, class, and subject and often include descriptions/explanations of the material. Image topics include plant anatomy (macro- and microscopic) and a wide array of plant diversity.

Botanical Society of America's Online Image Collection
BSA members have provided sets of images to highlight the wonders of the botanical sciences. Each image in the collection acts as a link to a page containing more information, and a larger version of the image itself.

CalPhotos: Plants
This database currently contains 140,369 digital images of plants, along with descriptive information including scientific and common names, location and dates of photos, and other information provided by the person or organization that contributed the photos.
