Flora of Israel online

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem hosts a website on the Flora of Israel. This up-to-date website provides names, characteristics, pictures and distribution maps of the 22 Pteridophyta and 2837 Spermatophyta recorded in Israel. Plants are organized not only according to their taxonomy, but searches are possible using other characters such as life forms, leaf types, habitats, distribution in Israel, etc. More than 250 botany articles from Prof. A. Danin are also available, including the Nomenclature news of Flora Palaestina.
This website maintains close relationships with its users by circulating a short monthly E-newsletter which includes links and updates regarding the site as well as useful seasonal botanical news.
