The Alabama Plant Atlas (Atlas) will be a recognized program of the University of West Alabama (UWA), but will be a shared resource for herbaria throughout the state. The objectives of this project are to implement the Alabama Plant Atlas and enhance the plant specimen data management system to facilitate specimen data sharing between herbaria containing Alabama plant specimens. The efforts included in this project have been designed to meet the existing and future needs of this collaborative endeavor.

Project Results / Publications:

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
