NYBG press publishes final volume of landmark 'Intermountain Flora' series
Date:9/20/2012

Completing a monumental project that traces its origins back to the 1930s, The New York Botanical Garden Press has published the final volume of "Intermountain Flora," which documents in extensive detail the plant life found between the Sierra Nevada and Rocky Mountains in the American West. Previous volumes in the series have become indispensable references for the preservation of natural resources and wilderness areas in this botanically important region, and the high scholarly standards maintained throughout the series have placed it in the forefront of works of its type.

Superbly illustrated with precise line drawings of every species in the book, the new volume covers 611 species in a wide range of plant families, from water lilies to cacti. Among the well-known or typical plants and trees of the region included in this 732-page volume are buttercups, delphiniums, amaranths, poppies, oaks, birches, and dozens of species of wild buckwheat. The eight volumes of the series total 3,868 pages and include descriptions of 3,847 species.

Botanical Garden scientists Noel H. Holmgren, Ph.D., and Patricia K. Holmgren, Ph.D., and James L. Reveal, Ph.D., of Cornell University and the University of Maryland, are the principal authors.

"'Intermountain Flora' is arguably the most scholarly flora ever published," said James S. Miller, Ph.D., the Garden's Dean and Vice President for Science. "It has fundamentally transformed our understanding of the plant diversity of the Intermountain region and provided raw material for making sound conservation decisions."

Covering an area the size of Texas, the Intermountain region encompasses all or parts of seven statesall of Utah, major parts of Nevada and Idaho, and parts of Oregon, California, Arizona, and Wyoming. Included in this self-contained area are the Great Basin, the Snake River Plain, and a considerable part of the Colorado Plateau. With its isolated mountain ranges and m
