This represents the thesis project by the late Stuart Markow. Fieldwork was conducted during the summers of 1991 and 1992. The area encompassed the Snake River, Big Hole, and west slope of the Teton ranges of Wyoming and Idaho, Island Park, Centennial Ridge, and Southern Beaverhead Range, Idaho (including parts of Lincoln and Teton counties, Wyoming; Bonneville, Clark, Fremont, Lemhi, Madison, and Teton counties, Idaho) for a total of 2,885 mi2 ranging in elevation from 5,600 to 11,383 feet. Collected were 13,442 specimens documenting 1,104 unique taxa. Lithospermum arvense represented a new record for Wyoming. Species of conservation concern totaled 21 documented at 31 sites. Also vouchered were 99 exotics including 15 noxious weeds. Funding was provided by the Targhee National Forest, The Nature Conservancy, and the University of Wyoming.
