Click the image again (not on the text).
When clicking on the displayed text, a new window will open with a search for the latin name on DuckDuckGo.
The web sites/books I use most are:
- Herbario Virtual del Mediterráneo Occidental: Castilian/Catalan/English.
- Flora silvestre del Mediterráneo: Castilian.
- FloraCatalana: Catalan.
- Tela Botanica: French/English.
- Flore Alpes: French.
- Schede di botanica: Italian.
- Was blüht am Mittelmeer?: German.
- Les principals plantes per a la salut d'Eivissa i Fomentera: Catalan.
When I'm walking around Formentera, I've taken macros of nearly every flower I can see. Back at home, I find out what it is and publish it to the web.
Latin, Catalan, Castilian, French and German. The Latin names are aligned to APG III.
Sometimes the English Wiki doesn't exist, that's why we open the Spanish Wiki or another web page.
That happens when I couldn't find the common name.
- Latin: sort by Latin names.
- Order-Families: sort by Order-Families-Latin names.
- Sort by color: sort by flowers color.
- Mobile version: sort by flowers color, without hover effect to allow viewing the names under mobile devices.
Nothing else than a better text editor to write the code and a simple picture editor to resize these images (Preview).
The first version was "just for fun" to learn some new CSS commands. After several comments about enhancements, I changed the concept and made a fully usable page.
It has been tested under:
- Android 4.0.4
- Mac OS X 10.9.3: Chrome 27.0, Firefox 30.0, Safari 6.0.5
- Microsoft Windows 7 Starter: Firefox 15.0.1/17.0.1, Internet Explorer 9.0
Best view is on Firefox running under Mac OS X.
It always takes time to download more than 200 pictures...
