Plants 

Flower images are organised by their Scientific Name and split into nine arbitrary sub-sections. 
 
Fungi are split into two arbitrary sub-sections, organised by Scientific Name with the Common Name given, where there is one. All of the images included here have been identified. Most were taken in Northamptonshire. 
 
Others contains a number of images which might be of interest just as images, rather than as an ID aid. Most are of flowers or trees from around the world - including Botanical collections such as Kew Gardens and Singapore Botanical Garden. 
 
An Index to the Plants of each country appears near the top of that country's main page in Places. Below is an Index to the flower photos organised by Common Name, with Family name first.

More Information 
I have used Collins Fungi Guide (Buczacki, Shields and Ovenden) as my main aid. Mushrooms and Toadstools of Britain and Europe by Garnweidner (a photographic guide) and Hamlyn Guide to Mushrooms and Toadstools by Kibby are also very useful. 
 
For Flower ID I have used Harrap's Wild Flowers ( a photographic guide), Wild Flowers of Britain and Northern Europe by Fitter and Blamey and The Wild Flower Key by Francis Rose. For European flower ID Flowers of the Alps by Ansgar Hoppe is very useful, as is Mediterranean Wild Flowers by Blamey and Grey-Wilson.  
http://florasilvestre.es is a comprehensive photographic guide to the Mediterranean.
