Description: Descriptions of morphological characteristics, habitat, and geographic distributions are provided for 114 sedges (Carex spp.) of the Intermountain area. A dichotomous key, color photographs, line drawings, and discussions highlighting differences among similar species aid identification. An illustrated morphology, glossary, and index of common names simplify use. The guide is not inclusive; comprehensive local floras should be checked to confirm identifications.
Keywords: Carex, Cyperaceae, grasslike species, plant taxonomy, riparian, wetlands
