VASCAN : Database of Canadian Vascular Plants
Title: VASCAN : Database of Canadian Vascular Plants
Title abbreviated: VASCAN
Creator: Brouillet, Luc [Coordination and design]; et al.
Abstract: VASCAN is the Database of Vascular Plants of Canada. It is a comprehensive list of all vascular plants reported in Canada, Greenland (Denmark) and Saint Pierre and Miquelon (France). VASCAN is literature-based, though recent additions are sometimes specimen-based. For every species, subspecies and variety in VASCAN we provide the accepted scientific name (Latin), the accepted French and English vernacular name, and their synonyms/alternatives in Canada. We indicate the distribution status (native, introduced, etc.) of the plant for each province or territory, and the habit (tree, shrub, herb or vine) of the plant in Canada. For reported hybrids (nothotaxa or hybrid formulas), we also provide the hybrid parents*, except for introduced hybrids. We refer to a source for all name, classification and distribution information. [Information of the supplier]
