About the Plant Atlas
The Atlas of Florida Plants is a joint effort by the Institute for Systematic Botany, the University of South Florida and the USF Water Institute to provide users with a comprehensive searchable database of plants in the state of Florida.
Florida has over 4,700 species of native or naturalized plants, which includes over 4,300 species of vascular plants and over 400 species of bryophytes (plants known only from cultivation are not included). This website also provides access to the USF Herbarium, which houses over 280,000 specimens from around the world (about 50% of these are databased and available online).
