The aim of the Checklist of Vermont Species (VTspecies) is to provide a comprehensive list of names of organisms, including information on synonymy, that have been recorded in the State of Vermont, United States. Like all science, VTspecies is a work in progress. Many taxonomic groups remain deficient and little studies in the state, and users will notice that many species are still missing from the database. Your contributions and feedback are essential to further improve the quality and taxonomic coverage of VTspecies.
While the highest priority is to provide valid names, other names in use are included so that this register can serve as a guide to interpret taxonomic literature and explore biodiversity data from the state. Completing a checklist of all species and keeping it up-to-date is a continuous process. New information is continually discovered and added. Often data also come in from contributions of large datasets, such as global or regional species lists. Please contact us with errors, omissions, or questions to help us make this resource as complete as possible.
VTspecies contains animals, plants, and fungi. For each species we provide scientific name(s), authors and year, vernacular name(s), classification hierarchy, citation proving that particular species has occurred in Vermont, and more. Further information of each species can be obtained at the Vermont Atlas of Life (VAL) at http://val.vtecostudies.org.
VTspecies uses a set of generally accepted references, augmented by recent scientific literature and expert opinion, to establish a standard scientific name for every species and their hierarchical classification. Generally, VTspecies follows the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS; https://www.itis.gov/ ) for authoritative taxonomic information on plants, animals, and fungi of North America, as well as the GBIF backbone taxonomy (https://www.gbif.org/dataset/d7dddbf4-2cf0-4f39-9b2a-bb099caae36c).
