This represents a staff project by B. E. Nelson and R. L. Hartman as well as Robert D. Dorn and others. Fieldwork was conducted during several summers. The area encompassed the Laramie Mountains (Albany, Converse, Laramie, Natrona, and Platte counties) for a total of 3,966 mi2 ranging in elevation from 7,500 to 10,272 feet. Collected were an unknown number of specimens as well as taxa. Species of conservation concern include Aquilegia laramiensis, Besseya plantaginea, Salix irrorata, and Symphyotrichum porteri documented at several sites. Also vouchered were numerous exotics and noxious weeds. Funding was provided independently and by the University of Wyoming.
