About This Book

The Jemez Mountains in north-central New Mexico host more than 1200 species of native plants. This richness results from the confluence of three floristic regions—the Rocky Mountains, the Great Basin, and arid grasslands and deserts to the south—that creates a unique flora. With detailed descriptions, drawings, and color photographs, Teralene Foxx, Craig Martin, and Dorothy Hoard present a comprehensive look at the flora of the Jemez Mountains in the three volumes of Plants of the Jemez Mountains. This book explores the full extent of the mountain range, including White Rock Canyon, Pajarito Plateau, Bandelier National Monument, Valles Caldera National Preserve, Jemez River canyon, San Pedro Parks, and surrounding areas. With non-technical terms and an abundance of illustrations, these volumes encourage plant enthusiasts, of all abilities, to discover the vast array of plants in these mountains.  The book is published by All Seasons Publishing.
