Start with
Scott's Botanical Links
"This site is my effort to compile useful botany education resources for the advanced high school (AP-biology) and college level. Internet resources vary in quality, so I have rated sites on a 4-star scale emphasizing educational value, completeness and scientific correctness."
Another great online resource from Prof. Russell.

Andean Botanical Information System (ABIS) (Spanish or English)
"...presents information from floristic and systematic investigations of the flowering plants (phanerogams) of Andean South America. Topics include selected geographic regions and groups of Andean plants, flora of coastal Peru and Chile, floristic inventories from a variety of habitats in northern Peru, bibliographic resources, and searchable databases."

Introduction to the Plant Kingdom
" Dr. Sean Carrington of the Department of Biological & Chemical Sciences at the University of the West Indies (UWI) has put together this excellent Website as a supplement to a first-year botany course. The Website is well conceived and beautifully constructed, and covers algae through seed plants with illustrations and examples drawn mainly from the Caribbean region. Each chapter includes text, figures, tables, and color photographs, and is linked to laboratory assignments and a series of exam questions related to recently gained knowledge. The site also offers handouts, a glossary, and related links. For anyone seeking a solid introduction to plants, this site is an excellent contribution. [LXP]"
