The first time that a botanical term is used in a text, that term is underscored. To see a definition of it, just click on the underlined word. The glossary will appear in the upper-left corner of the screen, positioned at the definition.
You can also access the glossary at any time by clicking on the Glossary button at the bottom of the screen.
There are many small diagrams in the glossary that illustrate specific terms, such as flower parts and leaf shapes. If you place your mouse pointer over a drawing and the background changes, a click will open a new window with several related illustrations.
In glossary drawings that illustrate a leaf or flower part, the part being defined is shown in red. A click on one of these drawings will open a larger illustration with all parts labeled.
Nearly all of the illustrations were drawn originally by Bob Muns and used here with his permission.
