    Description

    The vegetation of southern Florida is poorly described in the literature, and the taxonomy and ecology of the pine-wiregrass type especially has been neglected by plant scientists. These deficiencies in plant knowledge were a serious obstacle when research commenced in 1956 on problems of grazing cutover pine flatwoods at the Caloosa Experimental Range. Since then, plant collection and identification has been a high priority project. This paper presents a checklist of 189 vascular plants identified over the past 8 years, with a brief introduction to their habitat, abundance, and forage value.
