Botany online - The Internet Hypertextbook

International Edition - Contents

botany-online.org is still under construction. So far, the first 45 chapters have been translated from German into English covering all plant anatomy, classic genetics, organic chemistry and plant biochemistry, intercellular communication, interactions between plants, fungi, bacteria, and viruses, evolution, and a part of ecology. The translation of the remaining topics proceeds continuously. Some of the links will therefore still lead you to German information units.
