A New Social Network Just for Botanists

This new website, www.my-plant.0rg,  was created by Richard Olmstead and funded by the National Science Foundation to foster communication among botanists working on specific groups of plants. Users can create their own ‘clade’, like New York mints for example, and invite others to join in the discussion to build a community of users with similar taxomomic interests.  The developers tout it as more than just another social networking site, My-Plant.org also provides integrations and links into other sites, tools and repositories of information both within iPlant and across the community as a whole.
