Summary
Abstract: To provide an overview of vascular plant distribution in Arkansas.

Provides vascular plant distribution data for Arkansas counties. One
may browse diversity/distribution maps for the Arkansas flora by
selecting from an alphabetical (first letter) index. Also provided is
a table of Arkansas counties, ranked in order of number of taxa
collected, from which one may retrieve either an outline map of the
state showing the county location or a hierarchical checklist of taxa
collected from the county.

See: "http://www.csdl.tamu.edu/FLORA/arkansas/arkfamyy.htm"

The current map distributions are based on An Atlas and Annotated
Checklist of the Vascular Plants of Arkansas (1988) by Dr. Edwin
B. Smith as converted to electronic form by The Biota of North America
Program and processed by The Texas A&M Bioinformatics Working Group.
