The Flora of Colorado.

Colorado has a rich diversity of ecosystems and vegetation communities, ranging from 3,500 ft to over 14,000 ft in elevation, and ultimately supports nearly 3200 taxa. The recently published Flora of Colorado is a comprehensive guide to the vascular plants in Colorado, and contains descriptions, distribution maps, habitat information, flowering times, and elevation ranges for all species in the state. Color photographs for nearly 1/3 of the species are also included to aid in identification. The Flora of Colorado also contains detailed vegetation community information, an illustrated glossary, and instructions on how to make a plant collection.  The flora utilizes scientific names consistent with the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature, and reflects a modern phylogenetic framework with regards to family and generic species delimitations mostly following the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group III system standards.  The aim of this flora is to enable students, researchers, amateur and professional botanists, or anyone interested in the flora of Colorado to successfully identify plants with confidence and satisfaction.
