The Florida Natural Areas Inventory is pleased to present our Field Guide to the Rare Plants and Animals of Florida online. This field guide presents detailed descriptions, photographs, drawings, maps, habitat information, and management guidelines for more than 200 rare plant species and 150 rare animal species. We are grateful to the Florida Department of Transportation for their cooperation and funding of this project. Note: not all species tracked by the Inventory are included in the Field Guide. The Inventory tracks more than 1,000 rare plant and animal species. The same information in this online Field Guide is available in hardcopy form as two separate books, one for animals and one for plants. The Field Guides provide the species accounts in 3-ring binders convenient for rearranging species accounts to customize the Guide for individual use.
