THE PLANTSCOPE® DATABASE
The PLANTSCOPE® database, an internet-based service of the Nationaal Depot Siergewassen (National Depot of Ornamental Plants) in The Netherlands is presented. This foundation is a co-operation between the main parties in the Dutch ornamental plant industry, being traders, growers, and breeders of cutflowers, potplants, nurserystock, bulbous, and seed-raised cultivars. The goal of this co-operation is to bring together and distribute data regarding the identity of ornamentals and to improve the accessibility of pictures of ornamentals for both promotional and identification purposes.
