Flora Buttensis

Flora Buttensis was produced at the Chico State Herbarium from 1980 through 1986 by Mary S. Taylor, then a graduate student and local herbariophile. Volume 1, Number 3, from 1980, is particularly noteworthy as the start of the Butte County flora project which culminated with the publication in 1994 of Vern Oswald's "Manual of the Vascular Plants of Butte County, California" by the California Native Plant Society.

We are starting to scan these volumes to pdf, beginning with local checklists. This may take some time, so if you would like to see any particular issues become available here as pdfs, please contact the Chico State Herbarium curator.
