Alaska Rare Plant Field Guide

The Taxonomy, Conservation Status, Distribution, Morphology, and Ecology of 80 Rare Vascular Plant Species of Alaska

Timm Nawrocki, Justin Fulkerson, Matthew Carlson

Funding for the Alaska Rare Plant Field Guide was provided by the Bureau of Land Management and the University of Alaska Anchorage. The current version of the guide is an update of the 1997 Alaska Rare Plant Field Guide by Robert Lipkin and David F. Murray. This guide is intended as an aid to the discovery of additional rare plant populations and the conservation of known rare plant populations.
