General Interest Article
Although a manual of the vascular plants of Iowa has yet to be written, many botanists have contributed to a thorough floristic survey of the state, and most of the difficult plant families have been studied taxonomically. The number of vascular plant species is estimated at over 1,800. It would probably require five or more years of concentrated effort to produce an accurate, comprehensive manual of the Iowa flora. A listing of 238 selected references on the Iowa vascular flora is presented.
