NYBG press publishes final volume of landmark 'Intermountain Flora' series

the text and markedly increase the usefulness of Intermountain Flora."

In addition to scientists who study the Intermountain West, the series has won followers among land-use managers, civil engineers, conservation officials, nature lovers, and others.

"Previous volumes of 'Intermountain Flora' have helped wilderness and parks officials to become more familiar with the land that they steward," said Joy E. Runyon, Managing Editor of NYBG Press. "They have a fuller sense of the biodiversity of that land, the health of that land, and the interesting features of that land. For other readers, the series offers the satisfaction of being more connected to the natural world and having a better understanding of what they see."

The history of the "Intermountain Flora" project is a story that not only spans decades of painstaking research but also unites several generations of scientists, including a teacher and his students, a father and a son, and a husband and a wife. Botanist Bassett Maguire first proposed a comprehensive study of the plant life of the Intermountain West in the late 1930s when he was a professor at Utah State University. Maguire brought the project with him when he joined the Garden in 1943.

One of his earliest collaborators was Arthur H. Holmgren, a student of his who succeeded him at Utah State. Arthur Cronquist, another of Maguire's students, took Maguire's place on the project at the Garden as Maguire turned his attention to tropical exploration. Noel H. Holmgren, Arthur's son, and James L. Reveal joined the project in the early 1960s when Reveal was a student of Arthur Holmgren's at Utah State and Noel was a student of Cronquist's at the Garden. After the first volume in the series was published in 1972, Noel's wife, Patricia, joined the group of authors in 1977.

With the passage of time, the scientific team leading the "Intermountain Flora" project changed. Cronquist and Arthur
