The following checklist represents a revision of Local Flora - Vascular Plants of North Central Florida by Dana G. Griffin, III (1978). This checklist was derived from existing lists and expanded through observations made during several University of Florida field courses and a study of records at the University of Florida Herbarium. The names of several species listed in the 1978 publication have been deleted, while those of many previously unlisted species have been added.
The primary focus of this revision is the standardization of common names. I do not claim that this checklist is complete, nor do I expect it to be free from error. My intent was to list the more common or biologically interesting species found in north central Florida as a guide for those studying the plant life of the region.
I am grateful to the staff of the University of Florida Herbarium for the use of their facilities during the preparation of this checklist. I also greatly appreciate the assistance I have received from many individuals, particularly, Dr. D. G. Griffin and Dr. D. B. Ward. I wish to thank Kent D. Perkins, Collection Manager at the UF Herbarium for his editorial suggestions. Comments regarding editorial matters should be addressed to him.
As is always the case with such checklists, corrections, additions, and/or deletions are welcomed. Only with the assistance of everyone involved in botany in north central Florida will this list continue to improve.
