NZ indigenous plant list

A new indigenous vascular plant checklist for the New Zealand Botanical Region is now available from the New Zealand Plant Conservation Network. The checklist builds considerably on that published by the Network in 2006, providing a comprehensive summary of the New Zealand indigenous vascular flora. The list was written by Peter de Lange and Jeremy Rolfe and includes 2414 indigenous vascular plant species recorded in the New Zealand botanic region. The list may be ordered in hard copy form using the link below. It does not include approximately 200 taxa currently considered 'taxonomically indeterminate' (not formerly described or recognised as distinct) and these will be added as and when appropriate.
