Washington Flora Checklist
A Checklist of the Vascular Plants of Washington State
Hosted by the University of Washington Herbarium

 


Checklist Authors

The following lists include all individuals who have contributed to the development of the Washington Flora Checklist.

Fred Weinmann and Peter Zika compiled the majority of the initial checklist. Since 2007, WTU Collections Manager David Giblin has been responsible for the addition of all new taxa, and the editing of all existing taxa on the list. As of March 2010, fewer than 300 names remain to be edited, with the majority of these in the Salicacaeae and Brassicaceae (publication of FNA volume for these families due shortly). David is the primary contact for all taxonomic, nomenclatural, and technical matters relating to the list: dgiblin@uw.edu.

Paul Rodman deserves recognition for volunteering his own time to develop and host the initial Washington Flora Checklist website on his own web server from 2001-2006 before the checklist was transferred to the WTU Herbarium in early 2007.

Ben Legler is the current web developer and programmer for the checklist.
