Flora of Burtonmore and Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA
Index by Scientific Name
This list is not, at this time, a complete list of all possible species for Worcester County; rather, it is selective for those I have seen or collected.

If a name is preceded by a symbol (Φ, λ, or Δ), clicking the symbol will bring up an illustrated page for that species with site and observation information, links for other illustrations, and further reference. The λ indicates a link within another species’s page.
Those species for which I have included illustrations from original sources, many of them pre-Linnean, are prefixed with the symbol Δ.
