About this book

The Oregon Flora Project, Oregon State University, and Botanical Research Institute of Texas Press have collaborated to publish the Flora of Oregon, the first comprehensive flora of Oregon in over 50 years – with illustrations!

The Flora of Oregon is a three-volume reference that will be the only state flora published in the past half century and the first illustrated floristic work that exclusively addresses Oregon. Volume 1 presents treatments of the pteridophytes, gymnosperms, and monocots – 1054 taxa, or 23% of all native and naturalized vascular plants of Oregon. The taxonomic treatments include dichotomous keys, family and generic synopses, full taxon descriptions, and illustrations. A dot map depicting vouchered occurrences and highlighted ecoregions that host the taxon accompanies each description. There are pen and ink illustrations of 521 taxa, including 86 new works by artist John Myers.

Color photographs accompany chapters describing the state's ecology and sites for exploring botanical diversity. Also included are biographical sketches of notable Oregon botanists and appendices emphasizing plant taxa of interest to conservationists.

A valuable reference for land managers, policy-makers, naturalists, wildflower enthusiasts, historians, teachers, and students of all ages, the Flora of Oregon is a welcome resource for all who appreciate the natural beauty and biodiversity of Oregon.
