ABSTRACT A vascular plant reconnaissance was conducted at the Berea College Forest (BCF) during 2010–2013. A previous vascular plant report of the BCF, a 3,380 ha managed forest in portions of Madison, Jackson, and Rockcastle counties in east-central Kentucky, documented 1,017 specific and infraspecific taxa, 513 genera, and 139 families. An additional 25 taxa (13 native, 12 nonnative) were documented for the Berea College Forest including 14 new county distribution records. The known native and exotic flora for the Berea College Forest now comprises 1,042 taxa and 520 genera.
