    An Ecologically Annotated Checklist of the Vascular Flora at the Chesapeake Bay Center for Field Biology, with Keys: Updated Edition
    Daniel Higman (Author); Dennis Whigham, Geoffrey Parker, Olav Oftedal (Volume editor)

    Initially published in 1968 by the Smithsonian’s then Office of Ecology, this checklist was based on botanist Daniel Higman’s exploration of plant species found on three tracts of Smithsonian-owned land near the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland that represented a broad spectrum of ecological systems.  As part of the 50th-anniversary celebration of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), this first-known SERC publication has been updated and republished.
