The Field Museum in Chicago, Illinois recently launched a new website for their Live Plant Photos database, which contains (as of this write-up) over 20,000 photographs of flora from neotropical regions of the world. This database was established by Robin Foster and is currently headed by Nigel Pitman and Tomomi Suwa. Visitors can search this database by family, genus, species, country, or photographer. Visitors may be interested in participating in the museum's Rainforest Flowers project on Zooniverse, a citizen science project that invites people to help identify plants in this collection by tagging photographs of plants for features, such as color. In addition, visitors are invited to submit their own photographs of neotropical plants. This collection also contains a number of plant identification resources, including a series of field guides, available via a link at the bottom of the home page entitled, "About Live Plant Photos."
