Denali Flora: An Illustrated Guide to the Plants of Denali National Park and Preserve (Paperback)
Denali Flora is a field guide to the more than 800 species of vascular plants known from Denali National Park and Preserve, encompassing over 6 million acres in interior Alaska. Each species is described (habit, leaves, flowers, fruit), and most are illustrated with a color photograph. Information on each species' habitat is provided and notes are included on species traditionally used as medicine or food. In addition, family synopses, keys to each genus and species, and a glossary are provided to assist in the identification of unknown plants. Descriptions and illustrations of the most common mosses and lichens, important in the Park's ecosystems, are also included. Denali Flora will be of use to both the field researcher and the Park visitor simply wanting to learn more about the region's plant life.
