Catalogue of the Vascular Plants of New York State by David Werier

The Catalogue is a much needed up-to-date account of the vascular plants known from outside of cultivation in New York State. As a result of a fresh and independent examination of the flora, the Catalogue differs significantly from previous checklists for the state and incorporates much new research.

The Catalogue’s introductory material includes a history of statewide accounts of the flora, starting with John Torrey’s publications in the 1840s. The annotated species list, which includes 3,524 species, 134 additional infraspecific taxa, and 264 hybrids, contains scientific names, common names, synonyms, nativity status, nonnative status, voucher information, state ranks for rarities, and notes on certain species. Additionally, a list of taxa excluded from the flora is presented (excluded list) as well as a list of taxa that very likely occur, should occur, or soon may occur in the state (expected list). A thorough comparison is made between the Catalogue and the last previous checklist for the state.


The Catalogue is 543 pages and costs $35 plus shipping and handling for a hard copy.
