Does anyone know where I can find a list of Arkansas Plants and Trees?

I am a Wildlife Biology Major at Arkansas State University. My Biology of Plants professor wants us to do a digital plant collection...but I can't find any websites dedicated just to Arkansas. It has to be Native Plants of Arkansas. Help?

    The goal of the Arkansas Vascular Flora Project is to publish a definitive treatment for the flora of Arkansas--The Manual of the Vascular Plants of Arkansas. The Manual will provide keys to plant families, genera and species, as well as morphological descriptions, illustrations and distribution maps for all taxa in the state. Representing the first complete taxonomic treatment for Arkansas, the Manual will also include a comprehensive introduction to the state's botanical history, geology and vegetation.

    The Arkansas Vascular Flora Project is coordinated by members of the Arkansas Vascular Flora Committee (AVFC), a consortium of botanists from Arkansas and surrounding states. Initial efforts by the AVFC have focused on completion of the Checklist of the Vascular Plants of Arkansas and the Atlas of the Vascular Plants of Arkansas. These two publications will serve as a foundation of information for the Manual.

    The Checklist was completed in 2006 and is available for purchase through the University of Arkansas Herbarium (see Completed Publication below). The Atlas, which will provide county-level distribution maps for all species in the state, has an anticipated publication date of 2007. The Manual has anticipated publication date of 2014.
