In the prior few years there were many adjustments within the names of person plant taxa (species, subspecies, and types) and within the alignment of plant households. those alterations are recorded during this paintings in one of these manner that older medical names in addition to Spanish universal names might be tracked to new accredited ones. considering the fact that there's a lot overlap of the Puerto Rican flowers with that of different Caribbean islands and components, those nomenclatural adjustments can be of use to researchers operating in these areas.
This record covers 2909 taxa which are incorporated in 1053 genera and 210 households. of those taxa 2335 (80.2%) are local and 574 (19.7%) are unique; of the local ones, 243 (10.4%) are endemic.
