Parts I-IV were published in Contributions from the University of Michigan Herbarium, in volumes 11, 14, 16, and 17 respectively, between 1977 and 1990. Part V, under the title Resultados botánicos de la expedición de Sessé y Mociño (1787-1803), appeared as p. 1-5 in Logros y perspectivas del conocimiento de los recursos vegetales de México... (S. Guevara et al., eds.) in 1995. Part VI appeared in the Boletín del Instituto de Botánica, vol. 6, núm. 1, 9 de octubre de 1998.

This publication is closely aligned with the free, online database, "The Torner collection of Sessé and Mociño biological illustrations" (Bib ID 40486).

Scholars can pair McVaugh's exhaustive accounting of the approximately 7,500 plant names relating to the Expedition with the online database's full-color digital reproductions of watercolor botanical drawings from the Expedition for the most comprehensive information yet assembled about the botanical results of the Spanish Royal Botanical Expedition to New Spain.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 35-38) and index.
