The 1554-page Flora of Virginia contains vast amounts of 

information to help beginners through experts understand and appreciate
Virginia's native and naturalized plants. During this talk, Chris Ludwig
will present many features designed into the Flora manual to help us
thoroughly understand these plants.

Chris Ludwig is co-author of the Flora of Virginia. He is the Chief
Biologist for Virginia's Department of Conservation and Recreation, where he
directs a team of botanists, zoologists, and ecologists in their quest to
identify all of the rare species populations and significant natural
communities in Virginia. He co-founded the Flora of Virginia Foundation,
formed to produce the first modern manual to the vascular Flora of Virginia.
The Flora was published in December 2012.
