The Carolina Plants of André Michaux
In 1979 Dr. David Rembert Jr. of the University of South Carolina
prepared a study of André Michaux's plants native to North and South
Carolina that was published in CASTANEA, the Journal of the Southern
Appalachian Botanical Society.
Dr. Rembert's authority for the list of Michaux plants native to the
Carolinas is the Manual of the Vascular Flora of the Carolinas by Radford,
Ahles and Bell, University of North Carolina Press, 1968. This book is
also the authority for plants listed on these web pages and is
indicated by the letters RAB followed by page numbers.
As Dr. Rembert noted in CASTANEA, André Michaux was especially active
in the Carolinas and named nearly 300 plants native to the two states.
In addition Michaux named many, many other plants not found in the
Carolinas, but this list is limited to his Carolina plants.
The André Michaux International Symposium gratefully acknowledges the
active assistance of Dr. David Rembert Jr. in preparing this list of
Michaux's Carolina plants for the web.
The page references are to the Manual of the Vascular Flora of the Carolinas by Radford, Ahles and Bell (RAB) and Wild Flowers of North Carolina, by Justice and Bell (JB) with common name in JB also in brackets. All references to JAB are illustrated; illustrations in RAB are indicated by a check in the illustrations field.
