520 |aThe Wyoming Black Hills consists of a rich mosaic of habitat types, ranging from dry upland forests of Ponderosa pine and Bur oak, to mesic woods dominated by Aspen, Paper birch, and American elm, mixed-grass prairie, montane grasslands, and wet meadows (Marriott et al. 1999). Although the Black Hills ecoregion covers less than 5% of the state of Wyoming, it contains nearly 38% of the state’s vascular plant species. This high species richness has been attributed to the region’s location at the crossroads of five of North America’s ten major floristic provinces (Marriott 1985). Although currently dominated by species from the Cordilleran Forest Province (Rocky Mountains), the Black Hills flora is also represented by plants from the Northern Conifer (boreal forest), Eastern Deciduous Forest, Grassland, and Great Basins provinces (McIntosh 1931; Gleason and Cronquist 1964).
