dc.description.abstractWith a few exceptions, the species on this list of Falmouth vascular plants are substantiated by herbarium sheets, most of which are in the MBLWHOI Library Herbarium (SPWH). We invite improvements to the list by the elimination of errors and by the collection of Falmouth species not yet found. About 880 taxa are listed here, which is about 60% of Barnstable County’s 1440 or so as shown by the County Checklist (Cullina et al. 2011). Barnstable County is a geographically diverse place and not all of its vascular plants are to be expected for any one of its towns, but it seems likely that some dozens of the County’s 560 taxa not yet recorded for Falmouth are to be found in that place. We hope interested field botanists will endeavor to find these “missing” plants, collecting material so that herbarium sheets can be made for deposit in SPWH and their names added to this list. There are also many plants that have not been collected in Falmouth for many years. Material for herbarium sheets is desired for these taxa as well.en_US
