ENVS 1402 Plants in the Environment: Articles in Databases

Resources supporting research in Sharon Largent's botany class.


GALILEO is a collection of databases with access to periodicals, books, and other media. The materials in GALILEO are more credible than those found on an open web search because they have been selected for inclusion in the collection.  Databases might be multidisciplinary which includes biology/botany or might be subject specific to the sciences.  Rcommended databases for your project are in the box to the right.
