Thesis: A Floristic Inventory of the Lewis and Clark National Forest, Montana. (in progress)
This represents the thesis project by Richard McNeill. Fieldwork is being conducted during the summers of 2008 and 2009. The area encompasses the Lewis and Clark National Forest that consists of the Eastern Front and the Highwood, Little Belt, Big Snowy, Little Snowy, Castle, and Crazy mountains. The series of “islands” extend from near Glacier National Park south to within 50 miles of Bozeman (Cascade, Chouteau, Fergus, Flathead, Golden Valley, Judith Basin, Lewis and Clark, Meagher, Musselshell, Pondera, Teton, and Wheatland counties, Montana) for a total of 3,140 mi2 ranging in elevation from 3,419 to 9,477 feet. Collected thus far are 4,975 specimens. Funding is provided by the Lewis and Clark National Forest, the Dorn funds, and the University of Wyoming.
