This represents the thesis project by David T. Scott. Fieldwork was conducted during the summers of 2006 and 2007. The area encompassed Grand Teton National Park, J. D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway, a portion of Targhee National Forest to the north in Wyoming , and the adjacent Teton Wilderness (Pinyon Peak Highlands) of Bridger-Teton National Forest (Teton County) for a total of 754 mi2 ranging in elevation from 6,354 to 13,770 feet. Collected were 8,008 specimens documenting 967 unique taxa. Achillea ptarmica and Carex atrosquama represent state records. Species of conservation concern totaled 44 documented at 89 sites. Also vouchered were 71 exotics including nine noxious weeds. Funding was provided by the University of Wyoming/National Park Service program, Bridger-Teton National Forest, Dr. Thomas Ford (Aven Nelson Fellowship in Systematic Botany), and the University of Wyoming.
