Genus Names

This is a list of genera and families in the index to scientific names appearing in "A Flora of California", Jepson's never-completed magnum opus.

This index is the result of volunteer work by Tim Kask.

Images were made in collaboration with researchers at Xerox PARC and the Digital Library Project, UC Berkeley. The original high resolution TIF images have been converted to low resolution JPEG images to permit expeditious transfer and display.

The entire list (> 1.6M), which includes about 12,000 names, is at ucjeps.berkeley.edu/flora_index.html
