In May 1968, botanist Daniel Higman published An Ecologically Annotated Checklist of the Vascular Flora at the Chesapeake Bay Center for Field Biology, with Keys through the Smithsonian Institution’s Office of Ecology. Henceforth referred to as The Flora, it was based on Higman’s exploration of plant species found on three tracts of Smithsonian-owned land near the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland known as Java Farm, Corn Island, and Ivy Neck, which together represent a broad spectrum of ecological systems. As part of the fiftieth anniversary celebration of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), this first-known SERC publication has been updated by editors Dennis Whigham, Geoffrey Parker, and Olav Oftedal and is reprinted with support from the Smithsonian’s Atherton Seidell Grant Program for the Dissemination of Previously Published Scientific Research.
