New Checklist of the Flora of San Francisco

from San Francisco CNPS

273-Page Checklist of SF Plants, $15

To buy a copy, contact Libby at

The Checklist is the only complete list of every plant that has ever been recorded in San Francisco, historically and up to the present, in the natural and naturalized areas.  It documents when and where the plants have been recorded along with significant information about the species. The 13 tables provide further information on occurrences and distribution of native, invasive, and rare species.  Five maps locate the natural and naturalized areas in the city mentioned in text.

“It is a fascinating and really useful compendium of all sorts of information–far more than a mere checklist. I am having a great time going through it.”
Thomas F. Daniel, Curator Emeritus, Botany, California Academy of Sciences
