Description: Gray's biscuitroot is grazed by deer, sheep, mice, rats, and rabbits (COSEWIC, 2008). Ogle and Brazee (2009) rate it as desirable spring and summer forage for cattle, sheep, horses, elk, deer and antelope. Gray's biscuitroot is one of the first species to green up and flower after snowmelt. This characteristic makes this an important species for early spring pollinators and other insects. Known pollinators include solitary bees and flies.

Keywords: Gray's biscuitroot, Lomatium grayi, forb, seed production
