In the New Manual of Vascular Plants of Northeastern United States and Adjacent Canada the Clethraceae is represented by two species. As family treatments are completed for the New Manual, these are being made available as downloadable PDFs. The New Manual is a multi-year project by the New York Botanical Garden to fully revise and update the classic Manual of Vascular Plants of Northeastern United States and Adjacent Canada, Second Edition, by Gleason and Cronquist (1991, NYBG Press), in order to enable identification of all plants growing spontaneously in a vast region comprising portions or entirety of 22 states and 5 Canadian provinces (see map here). These family treatments are indispensable to all those interested having the most up-to-date information for this region of North America's rich botanical resources, serving the vascular plant reference needs especially of students, conservationists, wildlife managers, educators, gardeners, and citizen scientists.

"I have been interested in plants since the sixth grade. I have always been amazed by the different classifications and aesthetics of plants and how beautiful they are." Alexey Shipunov is a professor at Minot State University, North Dakota. Alexey works with multiple plant groups including Plantagineae (Aragoa, Littorella and Plantago) and Buxineae (Buxaceae and Didymelaceae), and also is responsible for the checklist of North Dakota vascular plants. Alexey earned his degrees in Moscow State University (Russia) and therefore has experience with both North American and Eurasian floras. To see Alexey's Web site click here.
