Please try our next iteration of the Michigan Flora Online here. Beginning on February 1, 2023, will point to this new site.

The new site offers several benefits over the existing website, including real coordinate mapping, giving a clearer view of the density of documentation as well as more precision about plant distributions and their link to landforms. We will also have the ability to update species pages more regularly, both in terms of new collections and as more existing Michigan specimens are georeferenced. In addition, we have a better photo display, and offer indented keys.

Eriochloa contracta A. A. Reznicek

An annual grass native south and west of Michigan, but sparingly introduced into our area. First collected in Michigan in 2011 by A. A. Reznicek in Washtenaw Co., though known for some years in adjacent Ontario. It was growing on a dry, gravelly highway shoulder with Polygonum sp. and other weedy grasses.
