Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area
This study began in 1983 and, as originally proposed, has three phases: 1. Floristic survey and herbarium development (1983-84); 2. Vegetation analysis and classification (1984-85); and 3. Conclusion of vegetation analysis and preparation of a vegetation map (1985-86). Justification for the study was to provide the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area (BCNRA) with basic vegetation information that could be helpful in resource management. Very little ecological research had been done in the BCNRA.
