Thesis: Delmatier, C. R. 1998. A General Floristic Survey of Southwest Wyoming and Adjacent Northeast Utah, ix + 200 pp.

This represents the thesis project by Charmaine Refsdal Delmatier. Fieldwork was conducted during the summers of 1994 and 1995. The area encompassed the Lower Green River Basin, Bear River drainage, north slope of the Uintas, Browns Park (Lincoln, Sweetwater, and Uinta counties Wyoming; Daggett, Rich, and Summit counties, Utah) for a total of 6,458 mi2 ranging in elevation from 5,400 to 13,528 feet. Collected were 8,855 specimens documenting 1,175 unique taxa. An additional of 128 Wyoming and 310 Utah “historical” records at RM/USFS raised the figure to 1,613 total unique taxa. Ten species previously unknown from Wyoming were discovered. Cymopterus constancei was described as new to science. Species of conservation concern totaled 56 documented at 80 sites. Also vouchered were 81 exotics including ten noxious weeds for Wyoming. Funding was provided by the Bureau of Land Management, Ashley National Forest, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and the University of Wyoming.
