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

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

Species that were not seen in the field survey, but which were vouchered from or near the trail, are given at the end of the list (marked with a V in the ID? column).

For species seen on the trail, the column ID? gives the uncertainty of the determination; see abbreviation for the determination uncertainties.

See Information about the links from the Scientific Name and Common Name.
