Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide botanical name update

We think this is one of the best field guides for identifying wildflowers in New York. Unfortunately the scientific names have not been updated since it was published in 1977 and now just under 30% of them are out of date.  Steve Young of the NY Natural Heritage Program has compiled a list of changes for each page of the guide.  It is available at the following web site:

It will take an hour or so to write in the new names but it is worth the time to be up-to-date. Have fun in the field!
