Scientific information on plants is useful for a wide range of studies in the life sciences. Global Plants, offered by JSTOR, is a very helpful tool in this regard. Global Plants features plant type specimens that are found in about 300 herbaria located around the world. The role of herbaria is to preserve plant type specimens. Now, with Global Plants, it is possible to easily and conveniently learn about plants in a wonderful way. The database contains over two million high-resolution plant type specimens, digitized with great care by various cooperating herbaria. Entries in the database point to reference books and other primary resources. Plant type specimens are very important as “original vouchers of nomenclature,” according to JSTOR.
