Volume Title


This guide will allow professionals and amateurs alike to identify most vascular plant species they are likely to encounter in Colorado's wetlands. The primary goal is to combine currently available wetland information into an easy-to-use resource to not only identify wetland plants, but to apply that knowledge towards proactive conservation and protection of one of Colorado's most valuable resources. The Guide not only assists with identifying a wetland plant, but information on its wetland indicator status, classification, conservation status, rarity, and ecology.
