A list of online resources

A list of online resources I use/have used/not yet used to identify things. I needed to organize my bookmarks and I thought I would share these links. Maybe you can find something of interest! Also, feel free to leave a comment if there’s a worthy website you want to share, and I’ll add it to this list.

Some of these sites are simply lists of plants found in a certain area, some have keys, some are more descriptive. I tried to describe each link.
