The Flora of Virginia Project is designed to produce a comprehensive guide to the plants of the Commonwealth. It will:

  • Provide a tool for plant identification and study by professional and avocational users from academia, government, industry and the public;

  • Assimilate and build on the rich tradition of botanical exploration of Virginia which began with such works as the 1739 Flora Virginica by John Clayton;

  • Incorporate the latest genetic-based information on evolutionary relationships along with the best traditional taxonomic approaches; and

  • Increase interest in the appreciation and conservation of Virginia's diverse and unique botanical heritage.
