About this book

This book is a guide to the vascular plants of the Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks and the surrounding forest and wilderness areas, the spectacular region known as the Greater Yellowstone Area. Vascular plants are the plants best known to park visitors and include the ferns and fern allies such as horsetails; gymnosperms such as pines, true firs, and spruces; and plants having true flowers (angiosperms) such as lilies, grasses, and roses.

While there are a number of references available on useful plants of the West and the Rocky Mountains, none focuses specifically on the Greater Yellowstone Area. A Guide to Plants of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks draws from existing scientific and popular literature, as well as the author's personal observations and studies over the past two decades.

Media reviews

"This book represents a significant contribution in that it compiles so much diverse information about uses of plants of this one geographic area."
– Don Mansfield, Albertson College of Idaho

"Designed for the layperson rather than for the professional botanist. Usable keys, two short but useful glossaries (botanical terms and medical), and simple, helpful black-and-white drawings of many of the plants."
