Also a lot of herb manuals and books.

Good site for dutchies, interested in plants.
It's possible to do a search / click a plant and see it's description, uses, folklore, habitat, etc.
It even has a section with an old scanned herb book (1554)!!

And a Wiki:
http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angiosperm_Phylogeny_Group
Not very much info, but it contains pictures - and can even be viewed if you don't understand dutch (it's mostly latin on the first page, which I don't understand - but can manage by clicking away :p)

If you alter the "nl" part in the URL for "en" you'll find the english version of the page ... containing even less info :(


EDIT:
Angiosperm Phylogeny Group website:
http://www.mobot.org/MOBOT/research/APweb/welcome.html

a wee bit scientific, but good info on classification etc.
Contains maps with spreading details in the world.

Tree identification:
http://www.bomengids.nl/hoofdsleutel.html (in dutch)
http://www.bomengids.nl/uk/hoofdsleutel.html (in english)

EDIT 2 (20 Feb.):
http://www.reticule.co.uk/flora/
Possibility to ID a plant, also have a look in the link section en recommended booksection (links to Amazon, regarding good plant books - including 2 Flora's of the British Isles).

Hello there,

I just thought I would let you know about this website I found, It is a tree search database which enables people to identify a tree by its common name / scientific name, its fruit type or by its leaf type.
For beginners like me with virtually no experience to fall back on I think this could be a handy site.

I hope you find it useful.

Can anyone suggest a pocket size book on trees, identifying them and best types to use for carving.
Also is there any pocket size books on using natural remidies for fak/medical. Like plants/bark/weeds and other flora and fauna?

Thankyou

Wonderful online ID site for UK Hemiptera:

http://www.britishbugs.org.uk/index.html

"True bugs (Hemiptera) are one of the major groups of insects found in the UK, comprising nearly 2000 species.

The purpose of this website is to illustrate as many of these as possible, since they are poorly covered by popular field guides. The availability of digital cameras has now made recording images of insects easier than ever before - come and discover the world of bugs and be hooked!"
