Description:
It takes tough plants to do well in Wyoming’s harsh climate and diverse landscape. This guidebook is meant to help the more-than-casual observer of nature identify the most important and common plant species on Wyoming’s rangelands. We have included many of the grasses, grass-likes, forbs, and woody plants vital to both wildlife and domestic livestock. Unfortunately, some areas of Wyoming’s rangeland are dominated by the non-native, invasive cheatgrass, and we have included it and a few other undesirable plant species.

Beside the photos of each of the 75 plants covered, we also included information on preferred habitat, forage value, and the physical, diagnostic characteristics that help distinguish each plant species. Flower and leaf shape, color, and leaf arrangement are the best clue to a plant’s identity in many cases. A glossary explains some of the specialized botany terms used to keep the descriptions
concise.
