The Stillinger Herbarium often compiles checklists of plants for popular local areas. These lists are valuable tools for use by the botanically interested public, as well as land managers interested in knowledge of species occurrence.
In addition, county-level checklists for the entire Pacific Northwest can be compiled from our specimen database. These checklists are dynamically generated from specimen records in the Consortium of Pacific Northwest Herbaria database. They should not be considered complete county floras. Although our database holdings are extensive, there are still many gaps at the county level. You can help us fill the gaps by collecting and donating specimens to an herbarium in our region.
