This page covers the woody stemmed seed bearing plants.  This is a growth form, not a taxonomic or a phylogenetic grouping.  Some of the families covered in this page will also be reported in other pages, especially the Forbs page.

The list is based on Karen Golinksi’s Environmental Overview report from 1995.  We will be updating the list as resources becomes available.

Taxonomy is based on the e-Flora website and Pojar and MacKinnon 2004.
