A collaborative effort was undertaken in 2015-2017 between Société Audubon Haïti, University of Florida and the Ministry of Environment to create a catalogue of the flora of Macaya National Park.  Thousands of herbaria sheets were scanned and databased at the Florida Museum of Natural History and made available online (see Wercklea hottensis). Additionally, a collection of field photos representing the unique flora of Macaya was curated and included in the catalogue. This will be the most comprehensive collection of plant images ever completed for Haiti’s most important biodiversity hotspot. Follow the link to Macaya Flora. Wercklea hottensis © Joel Timyan.
