The Digital Plant Atlas
The Digital Plant Atlas is an international project that makes a unique contribution to the identification of seeds, fruits, roots, tubers, bulbs, stem fragments, leaves, flowers, buds and resins. The plant parts are illustrated with high-quality colour photographs and accompanied by a scale and their scientific name. The local names in various languages are included in an index. In 2006, the Digital Seed Atlas of the Netherlands appeared. In 2008 and 2010, the Digital Atlas of Economic Plants and the Digital Atlas of Economic Plants in Archaeology will be published.
The Digital Plant Atlas is a joint project of the Groningen Institute of Archaeology (GIA), the Community and Conservation Ecology Group (COCON), both of the University of Groningen (the Netherlands), and the Deutsches Arch#ologisches Institut (DAI, Berlin, Germany). The books are published in the Groningen Archaeological Studies series.
