INEEL Noxious Weeds - Jackie R. Hafla

 


GSS-ESER-187 A Review of Special Status Plant Species on the Idaho National Laboratory Site Amy D. Forman, April 30, 2015

 


GSSESER-81  Common Plants of the INL - Although we sincerely hope this guidebook will appeal to a broad audience, it was written for a specific purpose; to aid in plant identification for vegetation projects at the INL. Therefore, several aspects of the format and content of this book were specifically chosen to facilitate vegetation data collection.
