Managers: Arizona State University Vascular Plant Herbarium
Arizona is the third or fourth most floristically rich state in the US with perhaps as many as 3900 species of vascular plants. Over the last 60 years an average of ca. 12 new species records have been reported annually.

The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum interprets what it calls the Sonoran Desert Region, which we define as the Sonoran Desert plus all of its included and contiguous biotic communities. (All eight of the world's biomes are represented in our region.) Geographically, this flora includes all of Sonora and the Baja California Peninsula in Mexico (including the Gulf of California and its islands), Arizona roughly south of the Mogollon Rim, and California roughly south of Interstate 40. Pacific islands close to the Baja California coast (e.g., Cedros but not Guadalupe) are also included. The region technically includes most of Sinaloa, Mexico, but plants that have been recorded in this region only from Sinaloa are not included in the present flora. A few plants that have been recorded only in Chihuahua close to the Sonoran border are included.
Managers: Sky Island Alliance
Sky Island Alliance's MABA project is a visionary initiative to catalog, protect, and restore one of the world's premier biodiversity hotspots. Over the next few years we will inventory the wildlands and wildlife of the Sonoran Sky Islands — a region of incredible biological wealth — while implementing community-based conservation, restoration and education activities that are key to the integrity of natural and human environments.

Over the next few years we will inventory the wildlands and wildlife of the Sonoran Sky Islands — a region of incredible biological wealth — while implementing community-based conservation, restoration and education activities that are key to the integrity of natural and human environments. Warning: Species lists associated with individual sky islands are automatically generated, and are incomplete in many instances. Use these lists with caution.
Managers: Desert Research Learning Center, Borderlands Habitat Restoration Initiative
This flora is an integration of floristic information from the National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the Sky Island Alliance's Madrean Archipelago Biodiversity Assessment covering the southwestern United States and Northern Mexico. This flora supports the restoration efforts of the Borderlands Habitat Restoration Initiative, a public–private collaboration whose goal is to reconnect wildlife, land, and people in the Arizona/Sonora Borderland region by involving people in restoring the ecosystem on which they depend.

Most of the interactions to date have been in connection with our desire to make our specimen information available and usable via the internet. We are now looking at developing a more useful web site by encouraging qualified individuals to provide images, preferably vouchered images, of living plants to the Consortium's site - which would also make them available to other collections using the same server.
