The Digital Plant Atlas Project is an international project that makes a unique contribution to the identification of seeds, fruits, roots, tubers, bulbs, stem fragments, leaves, flowers, buds and resins. The plant parts are illustrated with high-quality colour photographs and accompanied by a scale and their scientific name. The local names in various languages are included in an index. The Digital Plant Atlas project contains atlases and handbooks. Every atlas is published as a combination of book and website. In 2006, the Digital Seed Atlas of the Netherlands appeared.
Within the Digital Plant Atlas Project we have published the handbook: Handboek voor de Determinatie van Zaden en Vruchten in 2013.
In 2015 ERA coordinated the publication of a Dutch book (“De Natuur van de Kust”) summarizing recent knowledge based on actual ecological research in Dutch coastal areas. It was a common product written by members of the expert team “Dunes and Coastal areas” of OB+N, the Knowledge Network for Restoration and Management of Nature in The Netherlands.
The Digital Plant Atlas forms a part of the National Reference Collection (NRc) with over 20.000 accessions of seeds, fruits and well-conserved plant parts from all over the world.
The volume Digital Atlas of Economic Plants appeared in 2010 within this series.
In 2014 the handbook appeared in English as A Manual for the Identification of Plant Seeds and Fruits.
