Abstract

The flora of the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Region is the least represented in the checklist of Mississippi plants currently being compiled for the state. This paper reports 20 noteworthy collections from the region and discusses their distributions within the state. Typha angustifolia is reported new to Mississippi and Bowlesia incana, Caperonia palustris, Carya cordiformis, Carya glabra, Chenopodium standleyanum, Eichhornia crassipes, Hottonia inflata, Oplismenus setarius, Podophyllum peltatum, Polystichum acrostichoides, Proserpinaca palustris, Scirpus atrovirens, Senecio vulgaris, Sparganium americanum, and Spigelia marilandica are reported new to the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Region. Range extensions are reported for Callicarpa americana, Carex intumescens, Carya laciniosa, and Menispermum canadense within the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Region. Of the 20 species, Bowlesia incana, Caperonia palustris, Eichhornia crassipes, and Senecio vulgaris are weeds of agricultural and humankind disturbed areas. Carya laciniosa, Hottonia inflata, and Menispermum canadense are plants of special concern within the state and are on the state’s special plant tracking list.
