Papua New Guinea plants

There is fairly little readily available information for the native flora of the South Pacific. Thankfully, this has started to change with the advent of the PNGPlants Project. This excellent website brings together descriptions, factsheets and photos of herbarium specimens (such as the specimen of Nothofagus pullei above) to provide a very accessible introduction to the plants of one of the most biodiverse regions in the world.
