Upcoming MNPS events
2022 Year of the Mints
We will be focusing on the mints during 2022, starting with an overview article in the latest Marilandica: "Paired, Squared and Ready to Dance: Celebrating MNPS Plant Family of the Year for 2022: The Mints."
We hope to have one or more speakers talk to us about mints for the monthly programs and schedule field trips during which we can be on the lookout for members of the mint family.

Vascular Plants of Maryland
Vascular Plants of Maryland, USA: A Comprehensive Account of the State's Botanical Diversity
Wesley Knapp and Robert F. C. Naczi
This checklist provides the first complete, vouchered account of Maryland’s vascular flora. In total, we discuss 3,525 taxa and document 2,918 established taxa for the state of Maryland, 71.8% of which are native and 28.2% of which are introduced. Of the native species, 737 (25.3%) are tracked by the Maryland Natural Heritage Program as of conservation concern. We exclude 324 taxa reported from Maryland by previous authors and provide justifications for these exclusions. Knapp, Wesley M., and Robert F. C. Naczi.
