Welcome to Fritillaria Icones, a photographic botanical database to help with the identification, research and conservation of Fritillaria. An Open Access web based resource, available to anyone anywhere regardless of means and without the need to travel to various libraries and herbaria.
A series of photographs and notes are provided in Portable Document Format (PDF) for each Fritillaria. This provides many different options including print, zoom or save for viewing off-line. All the photographs show the date they were taken, an accession number and scale bar. For comparative analysis the main portraits are always photographed just after dehiscence of the anthers therefore establishing a common point in the annual cycle. Many of the images show details not previously recorded e.g. bulb renewal, stolon & bulblet growth and root development.
