From Plant Press, Vol. 18, No. 4, October 2015.
A revision of the genus Poa in Oregon, written by Rob Soreng and colleagues Barbara Wilson, Richard Brainerd and Nick Otting, was recently published in Flora of Oregon, Volume 1 (2015; BRIT Press, Fort Worth). This new book, edited by Stephen Meyers, Thea Jaster, Katie Mitchell and Linda Hardison, covers Pteridophytes, Gymnosperms, and Monocots, along with biographies of major plant collectors and details of the ecology of the state. All plant genera and about half the taxa are illustrated, and all species and infraspecies are mapped. More than 20 taxonomists contributed to the first volume of the first statewide flora for Oregon published since the second edition of Morton Peck's flora in 1961. Volumes 2 & 3 are expected in 2017 and 2020. Visit the Oregon Flora Project website for more information and data.
