Vascular Plants of the Americas

The Vascular Plants of the Americas (VPA) website contains the first integrated assessment of all known native species of vascular plants in the New World. It includes 128,716 species in 6,227 genera, and 355 families (Jan. 2019). The species number corresponds to ~33% of the 383,671 vascular plant species known globally. The website includes country/region occurrence for each species. This list is a work in progress and updates are posted regularly on the website.
