A Synonymized Checklist of the Vascular Flora of the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands Full Text Index - July, 1998

This system will seek a direct match between the string entered in the box above and the text content of 'records' present in the checklist index. Entry of the string 'dusky' will, for instance, return three taxa with 'dusky' in the local name. The matching process applies to technical name, author, or any text string present in the base, indexed file. Since taxa are not listed by family, family names will not produce a return (see 'browse family' below).

CAUTION: All records (species-level 'documents') with matching strings will be returned to your browser as a single HTML document. Thus, entry of the string 'California' will produce a single document (nearly 5mb) that carries all California species.
