The PLANTS Database provides standardized information about the vascular plants, mosses, liverworts, hornworts, and lichens of the U.S. and its territories. It includes names, plant symbols, checklists, distributional data, species abstracts, characteristics, images, crop information, automated tools, onward Web links, and references. This information primarily promotes land conservation in the United States and its territories, but academic, educational, and general use is encouraged. PLANTS reduces government spending by minimizing duplication and making information exchange possible across agencies and disciplines.

The American Journal of Botany (AJB) publishes peer-reviewed, innovative, significant research of interest to a wide audience of plant scientists in all areas of plant biology (structure, function, development, diversity, genetics, evolution, systematics), all levels of organization (molecular to ecosystem), and all plant groups and allied organisms (cyanobacteria, algae, fungi, and lichens). AJB requires authors to frame their research questions and discuss their results in terms of major questions of plant biology. In general, papers that are too narrowly focused, purely descriptive, natural history, broad surveys, or that contain only preliminary data will not be considered.
As of December 2009, AJB also includes AJB Primer Notes & Protocols in the Plant Sciences,, an online-only section for papers intended to promote rapid dissemination of protocols used in genetic analyses of plants. Subjects appropriate for this section include: (1) marker notes providing primer sequences for microsatellite or other markers in particular taxa, and (2) protocol notes describing new methods for isolating, visualizing, or scoring genetic markers. For complete instructions for this section, see http://www.botany.org/ajb/PNP_Online_instructions.html. (more…)
These are links to journals in which articles concerning plant biology are published. The sites will almost always have a Tables of Contents available free and may frequently have selected articles, or the entire text online. Some sites are free; others require registration or paid subscriptions. Many journals have free “trial” periods, or bundle online with print subscriptions, so check the site to test availability. Links are checked monthly. Last revised Tuesday, 25-Jan-2011 09:01:20 CST.
The Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society publishes original papers on systematic and evolutionary botany and comparative studies of both living and fossil plants. Review papers are also welcomed which integrate fields such as cytology, morphogenesis, palynology and phytochemistry into a taxonomic framework. The Journal will only publish new taxa in exceptional circumstances or as part of larger monographic or phylogenetic revisions.

The Journal of Natural Products invites and publishes papers that make substantial and scholarly contributions to the area of natural products research. Contributions may relate to the chemistry and/or biochemistry of naturally occurring compounds or the biology of living systems from which they are obtained.
Specifically, there may be articles that describe secondary metabolites of microorganisms, including antibiotics and mycotoxins; physiologically active compounds from terrestrial and marine plants and animals; biochemical studies, including biosynthesis and microbiological transformations; fermentation and plant tissue culture; the isolation, structure elucidation, and chemical synthesis of novel compounds from nature; and the pharmacology of compounds of natural origin.
When new compounds are reported, manuscripts describing their biological activity are much preferred.
With a high ISI Impact Factor of 3.159 and 16,000 total citations as reported in the 2009 Journal Citation Reports® by Thomson Reuters, Journal of Natural Products ranks highly in four separate ISI Categories: Medicinal Chemistry, Applied Chemistry, Plant Sciences, and Pharmacology & Pharmacy.
Journal of Natural Products publishes Full Papers, Communications, Reviews, Notes and Book Reviews.
The Journal of Biological Chemistry publishes papers based on original research that are judged to make a novel and important contribution to understanding the molecular and cellular basis of biological processes.
