Digital atlases are a Northern Forest specialty. They are collections of studio and field photographs, arranged by species, with key identification characters, ecological icons, and a brief text. Each contains 500 or more high-resolution images which can be zoomed to full screen: essentially they are digital microscopes, preloaded with around 200 species each. They are designed for both pleasure and study. Our students them use them to verify identifications and to review species they haven’t seen; our friends use them for arm-chair tours of the beauty and details of the plant world.
