Plants of Hawaii Images

Forest and Kim Starr have created a wonderful resource for anyone needing photos of plants found in Hawaii. Their image Web site, “Plants of Hawaii”, includes both native and introduced species. Currently there are almost 51,200 images of close to 2,100 species of plants on their Web site. The images are accessible by scientific name and common name. Each page of photos includes links to other resources such as Bishop Museum and Smithsonian images and information and NTBG herbarium specimens. The link I’ve included takes you to the species page, but there is also a Family Index page.

Forest and Kim’s images are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 so they are available for sharing and mixing as long as you give them credit…. And they would appreciate it if you would let them know you are using their images.
