Regional Vascular Plant Collections Lists

The following regional vascular plant collections lists have been compiled from collections held in several Canadian herbaria, including UBC, CAN, and RBCM. They are based on collections efforts by botanists in these areas and not on comprehensive floristic surveys, so they do not represent complete regional species lists. For serious botanical work in a region, specimens should be checked for accuracy of identification. Note that herbaria specimens are often identified only to the species level and not to the sub-taxa level (variety or subspecies), so sub-taxa in each region may be under-represented. Overall the collections' lists should act as a introduction to the flora of a region, with recognition that they generally under-represent the total number of vascular taxa present.
