Plants of ACLT

This online database is a list of the plants that can be found on the lands owned and managed by the ACLT. Thanks to the cooperation of web projects hosted by the Smithsonian Institution and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, images can be viewed for nearly all of the 472 plant species on the list. The list can be searched by scientific name or common name, or plants can be listed that flower during a certain month.   more ...

This checklist is based on a 1986 plant survey of the Scientists Cliffs community and environs conducted by Dr. Steven R. Hill. The database includes Dr. Hill's information about flowering time, abundance, distribution and his additional notes. The 'additional sources' links connect to information about the plant and images in the Smithsonian Institution's Department of Botany D.C. Checklist and the Plants Database of the Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture.   close
