Abstract

The vascular flora of the Outer Banks, Ocracoke Island to Virginia, consists of 741 species within 413 genera and 138 families. Sixteen of the species are listed as rare or endangered in North Carolina Polygonum prolificum (Small) B. L. Robinson is a new state record. Thirty-seven species of southern affinities reach their northern range limit on the Outer Banks, whereas only three northern species reach their southern limit. Species of foreign origin, though numerous in the flora, are nonetheless only a minor component of the natural vegetation. Each taxonomic entry in the checklist is accompanied by an annotation which includes the locality and habitat in which each taxon occurs, frequence of occurrence, range extensions, rarity status, and pertinent synonyms.
