This site is a collaborative effort between the herbaria of the UW-Madison (WIS) and the UW-Steven's Point (UWSP), along with most of the other herbaria located in the state of Wisconsin. It contains information on each of the more than 2600 vascular plant species that occurs in Wisconsin, including photos, distribution maps, specimen records, and more.
Select a species to access available images.
Checklists (e.g., County Floras, Wildflowers by Color) are under development. Take a look or create your own!
NOTE: 'Interactive Maps' will plot only collections with known GPS localities.
NOTE: This site was constructed using the Symbiota software platform and was launched in Feb 2015; it is still in development. We encourage your comments for improvement, and appreciate your patience. Thank you.
