exploring the traits database...
This database of ecological traits, linked to Landcare Research's suite of
databases related to plant systematics, is designed as a one-stop-shop for
questions such as 'what kind of plant is this?', 'is it a weed?', 'does it
produce viable seeds?', 'how is the seed dispersed?'.
See About the ecological traits database for more details including the publication list.
A web service is also available for downloading plant trait data. For
more information email Margaret Watts at Landcare Research. The sample
application for the web service can be downloaded from
