Flora Ionica
  • Flora Ionica

    • The Flora Ionica website provides substantial information on the plant life of the Ionian Islands and is mainly based on decades of fieldwork, supplemented with literature and herbarium records. Here, we present a comprehensive checklist, distribution maps and synonyms of all vascular plants indigenous or naturalized on the islands. In addition, photographs are provided for large parts of these plants and many critical groups and uncertain historical records are discussed. The content is continuously amended and updated.
