Welcome to Popweb

Popweb is an Internet resource for information on the identification of plants and pollen, the present and past distribution of these plants and the ecosytems they are part of.

To find information on a particular plant, either enter its common or its scientific name into the Popweb search. Alternatively, you can browse through the Index of species to find what you are looking for.

If you would like more information on a particular topic, try the Gateway section where you will find links to other resources both on The Internet and in print.

Popweb incorporates some tools, such as the Glossary, to help you as you learn about plants and pollen. The glossary is designed to be used in conjuction with the text so pops-up in a new browser window to allow you to refer to it as you read. If you click the glossary link and nothing happens, it is likely that the glossary is already open behind your current browser window. To find it, simply look at your taskbar or minimise the active window. The same applies for anything that Popweb opens in a new window, such as pictures or the search facility.
