The Digital Plant Atlas is an international project that makes a unique contribution to the identification of seeds, fruits, and vegetative plant parts. The plant parts are depicted with high-quality color photos and scientific name. The Digital Seed Atlas of the Netherlands was published in 2006. The Digital Atlas of Economic Plants was published in early 2010; in 2012 the Digital Atlas of Economic Plants in Archeology followed. In addition, two handbooks were published: the Handbook of Plant Palaeoecology (2nd edition will be published in 2020) and the Handbook for the Determination of Seeds and Fruits in 2013. In 2018, the Digital atlas of traditional food made from cereals and milk was published. Each atlas of the Digital Plant Atlas is published as a combination of book and website. The books contain photos of all the plant parts presented and extensive indexes. The website consists of an open and a protected section. In the open area you can browse the atlas and view the photos in a small format. In the screened part, you can view all photos in large format and in more detail.
