Institute of Botany
Botanical Image Database
The Botanical Image Database of the University of Basel is containing 4'500 plant images, mainly of flowering plants. The collection is rather focussed on a compreshensive documentation of morphology, life cycle and ecology (including pollination biology) of selected species than on a wide overview of species. Hence the selection of species is a little arbitrary (or at least depending on what practically could be done). The database offers a wide range of searching categories with different masks, but also a simple text search within the ensemble of the database.
All images are presented at first in a preview mode (height 150 px). Each image can be enlarged to a size of approximatively 600 x 800 px and has a caption with indication of locality, photographer etc. Scientific and educational use of pictures is free. Commercial use needs the explicit permission (please consult the copyright section for further details).
