The American Association of Botanical Gardens and Arboreta (AABGA) was founded in 1940 by a small group of botanical garden directors. Operated initially on a volunteer basis, AABGA acquired part-time professional staff in 1972 and full-time staff in 1981. Over the past 10 years, AABGA has experienced dramatic growth. Institutional membership has grown from 100 to 490 and individual membership from 800 to almost 3,000. This growth reflects both the association's strengths and the increase in the number of botanical gardens.

BG-BASE home page
BG-BASE is a database application designed to manage information on biological (primarily botanical) collections. It is used in a wide variety of botanic gardens, arboreta, herbaria, zoos, universities, and similar institutions needing to document their collections as well as to maintain other biological information.
BG-Map Botanical Garden Mapping System
BG-Map is a computer mapping system for botanical gardens and similar institutions. If you work at a botanical garden, arboretum, college campus, private estate, cemetery, zoo, or other facility in which detailed records and mapping of individual plants are critical, then BG-Map is the right solution for you. It links plant records stored in the BG-BASE collections management database with an AutoCAD map, creating a powerful Geographic Information System (GIS).
BIOSCI/bionet Electronic Newsgroup Network for Biology
BIOSCI is a set of electronic communication forums - the bionet USENET newsgroups and parallel e-mail lists - used by biological scientists worldwide. No fees are charged for the service. The BIOSCI site is hosted at the U.K. Medical Research Council's Human Genome Mapping Project - Resource Centre with additional support from the BBSRC and advertising raised through this Web site.

The British Trees web site was created by Bill Unsworth at the end of 1994. At that time Bill was in the process of setting up an Internet Service Provider called U-NET Limited which was created to exploit the potential of the Internet by providing access. British Trees was one of very first non-academic sites to be set up in the UK. In fact at the time there were less than fifty such sites in existence.
(A good resources site.)
Brooklyn Botanic Garden
The official web site of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
"BRYOPHYTES" was created to provide ongoing global access to the results of a monographic study of the Fossombroniineae. This project is supported, in part, by a grant (DEB-9521883) from the National Science Foundation under the Partnerships for Enhancing Expertise in Taxonomy (PEET) program. The support of NSF is here acknowledged with thanks. In addition to information about the Fossombroniineae, this site will allow users to explore the exciting world of bryophytes in general. This is a dynamic web connection where additions, updates, and refinements to all items on the index menu will occur continually. For technical support in the development and maintenance of this site, the SIUC College of Science Computer Information Specialist is gratefully acknowledged.
California Academy of Sciences
The California Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit institution, supported by donations from corporations, foundations and individuals; admission fees; store and cafeteria concessions; and by money from the City and County of San Francisco specifically for the operation of Steinhart Aquarium.

Cal's Plant of the Week
Interesting plants are featured weekly, with descriptions of the plant and how to grow it yourself, if you choose to do so.
More than 80,000 digital images are available for online searching. The images are the basis for our computer vision research, and many of them are also linked to other datasets we have online.
