More networks: The Intermountain Herbarium is contributing records to four networks, for bryophytes, fungi, lichens, and vascular plants of the Southwest, Southeast, Intermountain, Northern Great Plains, and Rocky Mountain Region. All four networks use the SYMBIOTA software so if you learn how to use one, you can use them all. The links will take you to each site.
Now available : Manual of grasses for North America; Grasses of the Intermountain Region. The manual has now been reprinted. The second printing has been spirally bound. No other changes have been made.
