Thesis: Packer, B. A. 2000. A Floristic Study of the Laramie Range, Wyoming, v + 104 pp.

This represents the thesis project by Barbara A. Packer. Fieldwork was conducted during the summers of 1997 and 1998. The area encompassed the Laramie Range and its foothills and adjacent plains (Albany, Converse, Laramie, Natrona, and Platte counties) for a total of 3,966 mi2 ranging in elevation from 4,210 to 10,272 feet. Collected were 9,168 specimens documenting 929 taxa. An additional 132 “historical” records at RM/USFS raised the figure to 1,061 total unique taxa. Species of conservation concern totaled 14 documented at 42 sites. Also vouchered were 101 exotics including 13 noxious weeds. Funding was provided by the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest and the University of Wyoming.
