APNI is a tool for the botanical community that deals with plant names and their usage in the scientific literature, whether as a current name or synonym. APNI does not recommend any particular taxonomy or nomenclature. For a listing of currently accepted scientific names for the Australian vascular flora, see the Australian Plant Census (APC).
Indexes more than 700 international journals, 1934-present. The Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals database offers a comprehensive listing of journal articles on architecture and design, including bibliographic descriptions on subjects such as the history and practice of architecture, landscape architecture, city planning, historic preservation, and interior design and decoration. We recommend this database if your research topic has a garden or landscape design focus.
The Burnley Plant Guide (BPG) is an indexed, searchable database of plants that has been developed to support the learning of plants by students at the University of Melbourne, particularly those who undertake courses at its Burnley Campus. The database contains information on over 2,700 plant species or cultivars, and more than 7,500 images illustrating plant recognition characters, plant habitat, form, and use in the landscape. The plants included are based on those taught in undergraduate and postgraduate subjects and are for the most part, common in cultivation in south-eastern Australia.
Agriculture, Environment and Life Sciences CAB Abstracts is the premier international database for agriculture, veterinary science and forestry. It indexes literature from 1910, covering the significant research and development literature in the fields of agriculture (including horticulture), forestry, aspects of human health, human nutrition, animal health, and the management and conservation of natural resources.
(EBSCO) Provides access to articles about gardens and plants.

A rich resource for garden, art and architectural historians, this primary source collection of 178 titles covers a broad range of subjects regarding the theory and practice of gardening, horticulture and garden design. Technological aspects are treated as well as garden ornaments, garden buildings, plant use, and the construction of green houses.
The International Plant Names Index (IPNI) is a database of the names and associated basic bibliographical details of seed plants, ferns and lycophytes. Its goal is to eliminate the need for repeated reference to primary sources for basic bibliographic information about plant names. The data are freely available and are gradually being standardized and checked. IPNI will be a dynamic resource, depending on direct contributions by all members of the botanical community.
IPNI is the product of a collaboration between The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, The Harvard University Herbaria, and the Australian National Herbarium
Interdisciplinary content to support research and teaching.
