Curious taxonomists, ecologists, and others:

I would encourage anyone with similar queries to consult the Flora of
North America gopher at the Missouri Botanical Garden (Home gopher

There you can search vol. 2 and read descriptions, distributions,
discussions, etc., for pteridophytes (ferns and allies) and gymnosperms

Vol. 1 is also available on gopher.  It contains the introductory
chapters, covering many aspects of past and present vegetation, soils,
climate, etc., etc., in North America north of Mexico.

Volume 3 (Magnoliidae and Hamamelidae) will be posted later this year.
