Floristics Projects: Idaho
Select a project from the map or list below:
- Payette National Forest and Vicinity. This represents the thesis project by Joy C. Handley. Fieldwork was conducted during the summers of 1999 and 2000. The area encompassed the Hitt, Cuddy, and West mountains, parts of the Seven Devils and Salmon River mountains including portions of Frank Church-River of Return and Hells Canyon Wilderness (including parts of Adams, Idaho, Valley, and Washington counties) for a total of 5,100 mi2 ranging in elevation from 1,400 to 9,545 feet. Collected were 12,062 specimens documenting 1,186 taxa. An addition of 113 “historical” taxa at the RM/USFS raised the total to 1,299 unique taxa. Species of conservation concern totaled 20 documented at 44 sites. Also vouchered were 139 exotics including 15 noxious weeds. Funding was provided by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Bureau of Land Management, C. P. and Evelyn S. Plummer Trust, Dr. Thomas Ford (Aven Nelson Fellowship in Systematic Botany), Payette National Forest, and the University of Wyoming.
- Salmon-Challis National Forests.
- Targhee National Forest and Vicinity. This represents the thesis project by the late Stuart Markow. Fieldwork was conducted during the summers of 1991 and 1992. The area encompassed the Snake River, Big Hole, and west slope of the Teton ranges of Wyoming and Idaho, Island Park, Centennial Ridge, and Southern Beaverhead Range, Idaho (including parts of Lincoln and Teton counties, Wyoming; Bonneville, Clark, Fremont, Lemhi, Madison, and Teton counties, Idaho) for a total of 2,885 mi2 ranging in elevation from 5,600 to 11,383 feet. Collected were 13,442 specimens documenting 1,104 unique taxa. Lithospermum arvense represented a new record for Wyoming. Species of conservation concern totaled 21 documented at 31 sites. Also vouchered were 99 exotics including 15 noxious weeds. Funding was provided by the Targhee National Forest, The Nature Conservancy, and the University of Wyoming.
