A Digital Flora
of Newfoundland and Labrador
An Open Image Dossier
Over time, this
"open image dossier" will accumulate digital images of most of the
almost 2000 Newfoundland and Labrador vascular plant species, subspecies and varieties that are listed in the
Annotated Checklist of the Vascular Plants of
Newfoundland and Labrador, and in the developing online VASCAN database, plus a number of more recent finds,
both to assist in their identification, and to provide intimate views of the flora
not often seen by the casual observer.
Plants are named, and images are organized, primarily, according to the taxonomic scheme used
in the "Annotated Checklist", and to the more recent, developing, online VASCAN database.
However, in some places, taxonomy has been
updated further to reflect the very latest scientific literature. Additional taxonomic reference has been made to "the Bible" for the Newfoundland and
Labrador region: Fernald, Merritt Lyndon. 1950. "Gray's Manual of Botany".
Eighth edition. American Book Company. New York. lxiv + 1632 pp.; to the various new
treatments currently being
produced by the Flora of North America Project (although most are reflected in the VASCAN database);
to some standard European works; and to some additional Internet sources.
