By ecosystem

This section lists the flora of Atys as it appears to the laymen homin. Note that many of this 'flora' isn't even really plants, but actually fungi or even immobile animals. But you'd have to dabble in botany a bit before you realise this.

The flora you may run into varies immensely based on the ecosystem of the continent you're in. Only a few plants appear in multiple ecosystems (like the Olansi tree that appears in both desert and lakelands). Thus the flora is classified by ecosystem.

By classification

This section attempts to give a proper botanical classification of the flora of Atys.

According to matisian botanist Lirni Gillo There are 8 main botanical families ● Evergreen plants ● Fruit trees ● Grasses ● Herbs ● Intelligent Plants ● Mushrooms ● Roots ● Summer blooming plants

However modern botanists such as Komi the Nameless have reviewed his works and insist on a different classification with 10 main families

  • Evergreens
  • True plants (trees)
  • True plants (herbs)
  • Rhyzomes (underground plants and roots)
  • Conifers
  • Feather-plants
  • Fungi
  • Algae
  • Plazmoid plants
  • Intelligent plants
