Floristic Studies Carried Out in Virginia, 1960–2010

A PARTIAL LIST

In “Plant Discovery and Documentation in Virginia: A Historical Perspective” (Flora of Virginia, pp. 6–23; Flora of Virginia Mobile App, Reference Library), we say that a “comprehensive list of floristic studies completed by Virginia students, faculty members, and other professional and amateur botanists between 1960 and 2012 is available on the Flora of Virginia website.” We are also including it in the Flora App.

The list, through 2010, does have some gaps in the details, but it’s useful and will, like the Flora itself, always be a work in progress. We hope soon to fill those gaps and add studies.

We also hope to compile from the Flora species treatments a list of research problems pointed up by the authors for the benefit of those likely to carry out new botanical and ecological work in Virginia.
