Deep South Plant Specimen Imaging Project

Florida State University is leading a project, Deep South Plant Specimen Imaging Project (DSPSIP), that will give researchers a vast quantity of botanical information. FSU is currently working with Troy University, Auburn University, the University of South Alabama-Mobile, and the University of Southern Mississippi to create a database that will consist of high-resolution digital images of 100,000 plant specimen. The DSPSIP, which officially kicked off this month with a 2-year $200,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, is available to scientists and students everywhere via the World Wide Web.
