This represents a thesis project by Jeanette H. Flaig. Fieldwork was conducted during the summers of 2003 and 2004. The area encompassed the eastern San Juan Mountains (Archuleta, Conejos, Hinsdale, La Plata, Mineral, Rio Grande, Saguache, and San Juan counties) for a total of 5,000 mi2 ranging in elevation from 6,280 to 14,083 feet. Collected were 11,019 specimens documenting 1,069 unique taxa. An additional 191 “historical” taxa at the RM raised total unique taxa to 1,265. Species of conservation concern totaled 46 documented at 116 sites. Also vouchered were 114 exotics including 18 noxious weeds. Funding was provided by the Rio Grande National Forest, Dr. Thomas Ford (Aven Nelson Fellowship in Systematic Botany), John Marr Fund, Myrna P. Steinkamp Memorial Fund, and the University of Wyoming.
