The Digital Atlas of Economic Plants is part of The Digital Plant Atlas, 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.

Within the famework of The Digital Plant Atlas project, The Digital Atlas of Economic Plants and the Digital Atlas of Economic Plants in Archaeology will be published in 2009 and 2010, respectively. Like the Digital Seed Atlas, these two publications will consist of both a book and a website.

More information about the books and the project can be found on the websites of the Digital Plant Atlas: www.plantatlas.eu.
