Web of Species
The Web of Species site from Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts was designed to help students have a better appreciation of the plants around them. It uses the college campus to illustrate ecological principles and has a nice section on the plant kingdoms, families, and representatives of each such as goldenrod in the aster family. You don't need to be at Wellesley College to enjoy and learn about biodiversity in New England from this site.
