Abstract

Documented presently as growing wild within the Holmes Avenue Tract (Highlands Co., Florida, U.S.A) are individuals of 106 families, 282 genera, 464 species, and 478 infrageneric taxa of vascular plants. Of the 478 infrageneric taxa documented presently, 386 (80.8%) are native and 36 (7.5%) are endemic to Florida. Herein, seven main kinds of habitats are recognized for the study area, and individual taxa inhabit one or more of those habitats. Twenty-four presently reported infrageneric taxa are listed as Endangered (18 taxa) or Threatened (6 taxa) in Florida. Based on Wunderlin et al. (2019), 36 species plus one variety are newly reported for Highlands County.
