This paper describes a method of training an artificial neural network, specifically a multilayer perceptron (MLP), to act as a tool to help identify plants using morphological characters collected automatically from images of botanical herbarium specimens. A methodology is presented here to provide a practical way for taxonomists to use neural networks as automated identification tools, by collating results from a collection of neural networks. A case study is provided using data extracted from specimens of the genus Tilia in the Herbarium of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, UK.
