Checklist of Plants of Lebanon and Syria

Checklist of Plants of Lebanon and Syria

Asphodeline liburnica at Ehden preserve. Cedar of Lebanon (Cedrus libani) in distance. 19 May 2002.

Checklist of the plants of Lebanon and Syria is based on a list prepared by Paul Mouterde (date unknown) of all species from Lebanon and Syria contained in the Post Herbarium at the American University of Beirut. This is a large PDF file. Families are arranged according to Post's flora. I found Mouterde's typewritten list in the Post Herbarium. It includes virtually all the plants included in both Mouterde's and Post's floras. I conflated it with new records in the recent book by Thomé and Thomé, A Thousand and One Flowers of Lebanon (Lebanese University, 2002). Bear in mind that this is a work in progress! Please bring any errors or additions to my attention. Thanks to LaShawn Johnson for typing the list.
