The information provided here is an initial draft summary based on the provisional vascular flora checklist prior to vetting by our Taxonomic Committee. The information provided here should therefore be considered as a preliminary estimate. Information on taxon concept mapping conducted for the Flora of Alaska is available through the taxon concept mapping project website maintained by the Herbarium at University of Alaska Museum (ALA).
The Vascular Flora contains 2,251 accepted names of vascular species and infraspecies that are known to occur in Alaska.
- 1,721 species

- 407 subspecies
- 126 varieties
- 13 stable hybrids
The Alaska Center for Conservation Science (ACCS) has assigned “conservation concern” status to 312 vascular plant taxa in Alaska according to the NatureServe Conservation Status Assessment methodology. For more information on the rare taxa known to occur in Alaska, see the ACCS website.
Non-native taxa contribute a sizable and increasing portion of the Flora. Several taxa include both native and non-native genotypes. For more information on the non-native taxa known to occur in Alaska, see the AKEPIC website.
- 1,864 native species and infraspecies
- 396 non-native species and infraspecies
