Personal Author M. Asher R. Tveten
Abstract The purpose of this guide is to help people identify native plants and potentially harmful weeds on shrub steppe and grassland restoration sites in the Columbia Basin. This guide consists of a species list and corresponding pages of photographs associated with each listed species. Photographs of seedlings are provided to help one identify seedling as early as possible. Grass seed photographs are included because seeds sometimes remain attached to seedling root systems and can sometimes be used help one identify young grasses. To the degree that helpful photographs of mature plants are available, such photographs are included as well. Notes and arrows pointing out distinguishing characteristics are provided when they can be helpful with species identification.
