Researchers have created the first complete list of all known vascular plant species in the Americas. The searchable database contains 125,000 species representing one-third of all known vascular plants worldwide. Most Western diversity is in South America. The most diverse plant family in the Americas is Orchidaceae, the orchid family, with 12,983 species. It is followed by Asteraceae (12,043 species). Worldwide though, Asteraceae is the biggest followed by the orchids.
