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.

Matthew C. Pace is the Assistant Curator of The New York Botanical Garden Steere Herbarium, a natural history museum of ca. 7.8 million dried and pressed plants used for evolutionary, conservation, systematic, ecological, and ethnographic research. In addition to providing overall curation of this amazing botanical resource, his research focuses on the systematics and evolution of Orchidaceae, the orchid family, the largest plant family with at least 28,000 known species. Dr. Pace's research currently focuses on the genera Spiranthes, Goodyera, Platanthera, Pelexia, Cyclopogon, and the subtribes Goodyerinae and Spiranthinae. Due to their frequent beauty and appreciation by the general public, Dr. Pace also engages with various groups to help conserve orchids in their natural environment, through direct engagement in the field, public lectures, and citizen scientist efforts. He also serves as an Associate Editor for Brittonia, the Garden's journal of systematic botany. Matthew C. Pace's Author Page
