Many illustrations are available on Wikimedia Commons. Illustrations from historical books can be searched at the category Botany books. To use them in Pl@ntUse, simply paste the file name in the target page. Openmedia has a robot which uploads automatically images from Wikimedia Commons with all the metadata. Images from particular Wikipedias need to be first downloaded to your computer, and then uploaded to Openmedia.
