Various seeds and fruits images from El Herbario JACA - of Instituto Pirenaico de Ecologia (Spain). Following links through the Instituto main page there is access to Flora of Aragon and Flora of the Pyrenees.

Acta Plantarum website is a botanical wonder on the whole Maggi. I just need to make a short mention - it is Italian ;)

The Forum is great as well and open without registration; I like the idea of an index for their "Itinerari botanici" ('I've traveled' on quite a few).

...please take photos of the various seed types you have, spread on 1mm graph paper to show the scale, and send the named photos to me in the first instance.
The idea will be to post them, eventually, in a special seed ID section of the forum and produce a "library" of  photos of seed likely to be found in the seed exchanges of the SRGC, NARGS and  AGS .

.....We are trying to compile a file of photos of correctly named seed to help identify true seed for packers of the seed exchanges and to let folks see if the seed they "think" they have bears any resemblence to the true type seed at all!
.

Maggie,

What a great idea!  I am not very talented with a camera; but I will try to help :D
