JSTOR Global Plants

https://cod.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://plants.jstor.org
Description: 

--From JSTOR:
Global Plants contains the contributed collections of more than 300 herbaria from around the globe. Herbaria preserve plant type specimens that are used for the study of botany, ecology, and other plant science disciplines. Plant type specimens are in great demand for scientific study because of their pivotal role as original vouchers of nomenclature. They also act as a historical record of changes in various flora.
There are nearly two million high-resolution type specimens currently in the Global Plants database, and this number will continue to grow. They have been hand-selected and meticulously digitized by partner herbaria with generous support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Researchers and students can also access reference works and primary sources—such as collectors’ correspondence and diaries, paintings, drawings, and photographs—contributed by partners. Highlights include reference works and books such as The Useful Plants of West Tropical Africa and Flowering Plants of South Africa; illustrations from Curtis's Botanical Magazine; and Kew’s Directors' Correspondence comprising hand-written letters and memorandum from the senior staff of Kew from 1841 to 1928.

AGING AND DEATH

GROWING OLD IN A NEW AGE 1993.
13 episodes on Streaming video. These programs look at various aspects of aging in American society of the latter 20th century. Older people share their views on each subject. Learn about the impact of aging on both society and individuals as 75 diverse elders relate their experiences. The four ways that age is measured — chronologically, biologically, psychologically, and socially — are the basis for discussing the quality of life in later years. The series examines common misconceptions about aging and provides a springboard for analyzing new roles for elders, intergenerational alliances, resource allocation, and artificial attempts to prolong life. These programs are particularly useful for students of psychology, gerontology, sociology, family studies, human development, and health sciences.
