College, Vice-President of the Foundation of the Flora of Virginia 
Project, Former President of BSW (1987-1988)

Virginia, for its landmass, has the most diversity of vascular plant 
species of any state in the United States. The Colony of Virginia had the 
first flora, Flora Virginica, of any of the colonies which was last 
updated in 1762. Since 1926 the Virginia Academy of Science has supported 
efforts to produce a modern Flora of Virginia. In 2001 the Foundation of 
the Flora of Virginia was formed in 2001 to realize this goal. The Flora 
of Virginia was published in December 2012. The second printing with 
corrections was published December 2013. The Foundation of the Flora of 
Virginia project will continue to function to accomplish future goal of 
the Project. Marion Lobstein will overview the development and features of 
the Flora of Virginia and will discuss future plans of the Foundation of 
the Flora of Virginia Project to supplement the Flora.
