The Poisonous Plants of Georgia Project is an effort to make information regarding toxic plants in Georgia available to residents of Georgia through the publication of an internet website. Plant poisonings continue to be a common cause for poisoning in the United States yet few resources exist that are accessible and available to the general public that allow them to identify and research toxic plant species that they may encounter. This thesis describes selected poisonous plant species native to or naturalized in Georgia and includes some common landscape plants. Plant descriptions, toxins, symptoms, and treatment for intoxication are discussed. Additionally, a conceptual framework for the design of this website is included.
