Flora of Canada


Flora of Canada

The flora of Canada is quite diverse, due to the wide range of ecoregions and environmental conditions present in Canada. From the warm, temperate broadleaf forests of southern Ontario to the frigid Arctic plains of the Northern Canada, from the wet temperate rainforests of the west coast to the arid deserts, badlands and tundra plains, the biodiversity of Canada's plants is extensive. About 4,100 species of vascular plants are native to Canada, and about 1,200 additional non-native species are recorded as established outside cultivation there.

Many of the plants seen in Canada are introduced, either intentionally or accidentally. For these plants, see List of the plants introduced to North America.

The most threatened wildlife species (with fauna too) of Canada are listed in the List of Wildlife Species at Risk according the Canadian Species at Risk Act.
