Abstract: It is not known exactly how many plants in the widest sense, are involved in the Flora of Iceland. A team of Icelandic scientists, especially at the Icelandic Institute of Natural History, are investigating the different groups of plants, and they find every year several species not known from Iceland before, especially fungi, lichens and bryophytes. The phanerogam flora, flowering plants and ferns, are far better known. Only exceptionally, or once every 10 years are new wild species of vascular plants discovered in Iceland. One of the last one was Andromeda polifolia, which grows in a few remote places in the Northeastern part of the island. [Information of the supplier]
