This project was carried out during the period of 17 June through 30 June 1988 while in residence at the U.W-N.P.S. Research Center in the Grand Teton National Park. The goal of the research project was two fold. Having spent considerable time studying snowbank fungi in the Sierra Nevada it was decided to compare the flora of the Teton area with that of other areas receiving heavy snow fall. Secondly based upon experience from time spent during the previous year in this region, it appeared that there was an interesting diversity of species in the genera Russula and Boletaceae in the general vicinity. Also, since these are the fungi which I have spent considerable time investigating their diversity and ecology, it was desirable to learn more of the flora in order to determine its composition and to compare it with that of other regions.
