Horticulturist Peter Kirkland recently visited Melbourne Polytechnic to demonstrate features of his database PlantFile, which now covers over 3700 plant species.
Peter reviewed basic and advanced searching of the database, the generation of plant profile PDF reports, and useful tools such as a glossary and a list of pests and diseases.
