The project

The database is intended as a tool to assist with rapid identification of Neotropical plants, for use with other resources such as Neotropikey.  It is currently in the early stages of development, and incorporates only a limited selection of our image holdings. 
The web pages are periodically updated from an Imatch image management database, which in turn is periodically updated from Brahms specimen databases.


Although every effort has been made to ensure accurate identification of the images on this site, most of which correspond to specimens held in the Kew Herbarium, it is possible that some specimens or images may be incorrectly named.  No responsibility will be taken by Kew for any problems related to inaccurate plant identifications derived from the use of this website.
