The Flora of the PCT
A7 Pioneer Mail Picnic Area to Sunrise parking area: Family Order Flora

See The Flora of the PCT: A7 Pioneer Mail Picnic Area to Sunrise parking area for an introduction to this checklist.

This version of the Checklist gives the plant species from the trail in plant family order, with the Family and Scientific Name from the 2012 Second Edition Jepson Manual.

See Information about the order in which the species are presented, and the links from the Scientific Name and Common Name.

The column ID indicates whether the species determination has any uncertainty associated with it, ranging from ~, a likely but not certain determination; or sp, just a guess as to the correct species.

The column #Pls gives the the minimum number of plants, up to a maximum of 99 plants, seen in the field survey on 29 April 2013. If the column contains a V, we did not see that taxon, but there is a voucher from or near the PCT.

Version for printing, without lines and other text on this page: html (4 pages) or pdf Clickbook booklet (1 double-sided page). (See printing instructions for an explanation of these options)
