The New York Flora Atlas (Atlas) is an online resource for information including distribution of all the vascular plants that occur in New York State. Information is also available for taxa which have been erroneously reported from New York (excluded taxa). In addition to distribution, the atlas provides information for each taxon about habitat, taxonomy, native/non-native status, synonymy, and more. Images are also being added. Accepted taxa and their distributions are based on vouchered specimens housed at public herbaria.

Project Results / Publications:

  • PlantAtlas.org   Link

    University of South Florida

    This is a gateway website that provides access to the Florida, Alabama, and New York online Plant Atlases. These atlases are a source of information useful to anyone who has the need to know the distribution of plants within one of these states.

  • New York Flora Atlas   Link

    University of South Florida

    The New York Flora Atlas is a source of information for the distribution of plants within the state, as well as information on plant habitats, associated ecological communities, and taxonomy. In addition, users can learn about the location of vouchered specimens and see images to get a better visual for each plant.

  • Alabama Plant Atlas   Link

    University of South Florida

    The Alabama Plant Atlas is a joint effort by the Alabama Herbarium Consortium (AHC) and The University of West Alabama to provide users with a comprehensive searchable database of plants that occur in the state of Alabama. It provides a source of information for each species including the distribution within the state using historical and recent data.

  • Atlas of Florida Vascular Plants   Link

    University of South Florida

    The Atlas of Florida Vascular Plants provides users with a comprehensive searchable database of vascular plants in the State of Florida. Florida, with over 4,200 species of native or naturalized ferns and seed plants, is the third most floristically diverse state in the United States.
