Natalie,

You can also check out the Oregon Flora Project (
http://www.oregonflora.org/index.php)

Also you may want to contact the site administrator for PDX Ecologists (
http://pdxecologists.tumblr.com/) and ask to post your e-mail on their
listserv. I have found that folks are very helpful and respond to e-mails
quickly with valuable information. Many of the individuals also work in
restoration within the Portland area and will likely have information
regarding herbivory and establishment rates.

Best,
Amy

 Here are some websites I have been using:

 Silvics Manual of North America (for trees):

 Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, for the great majority of plant species, the kind of data you 
seek has never been compiled.  To take just the example I know best, the genus 
Achlys: after extensive searches on JSTOR, Google Scholar, and the stacks of an 
academic library, I still have zero information on its seed ecology or 
establishment rates (or indeed any aspect of its reproductive biology).  For 
ecology, I have had to content myself with gleaning forest vegetation surveys 
for the ones that name it in a table of plants found in a given forest type or 
vegetation association, and have found only one or two brief references to 
herbivory.  This, for a common, widespread plant that has been well-studied by 
phytochemists interested in its secondary metabolites.

Hi Natalie

Here are a couple of links you may want to look at:
http://www.inpaws.org/
(Indiana Native Plant and Wildflower Society) and
http://www.wildflower.org/plants/
(LadyBird Johnson Center)

I have bought books for my children. We use these a lot when
we go hiking – I really like them. They may be of use to you. Do a search under
“National Audubon Society Guides” ... e.g., for plants, wild flowers etc. They
are so well written with lots of pictures and you can put them in your rucksack
when hiking (i.e., compact with lots of information).
