Seventh Catalog of the Vascular Plants of Ohio

Edited by Tom S. Cooperrider, Allison W. Cusick, and John T. Kartesz

“This is a carefully done, accurate, up-to-date catalog of the vascular flora of Ohio, an excellent contribution to the systematic botany of Ohio (as well as of eastern North America).” —Jerry M. Baskin, University of Kentucky

Scientific study of Ohio’s plant life began in the late eighteenth century, and the first catalog of Ohio’s vascular plants was published in 1860. The most recent catalog, published in 1932, has understandably become outdated.

Now Tom S. Cooperrider and his co-authors, Barbara K. Andreas, Allison W. Cusick, Guy L Denny, John V. Freudenstein, and John J. Furlow, provide a comprehensive, modern reference covering the Ohio vascular flora. Including two thorough indexes—one to scientific names, one to common names—this user-friendly book will be invaluable for conservation and environmental workers in Ohio and surrounding states.

Tom S. Cooperrider is professor emeritus of biological sciences at Kent State University. His many publications include The Dicotyledoneae of Ohio: Part 2, Linaceae through Campanulaceae (The Ohio State University Press, 1995). Allison W. Cusick is chief botanist of the Division of Natural Areas and Preserves of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. He has collected more than 30,000 specimens of Ohio plants. John T. Kartesz is director of the Biota of North America Program at the University of North Carolina and the author of two volumes on the plants of North America.
