Yosemite Wildflower Guide: Sources and Credits

Hurrah for the books listed below! Without their help, I would have had to just make up names for most of the wildflowers in this guide. Not that I wouldn't have done a better job. Goat's beard? Who came up with that one, and what illicit native plants were they ingesting just beforehand?

But I digress.

A big thanks to Mary Cary, Joanna Clines, Alison Colwell, and Carolyn Croker for diverting a few cycles of their enormous brains to the matter of flower identification. If I managed to get anything right in this guide, it's probably thanks to their help.

These websites are also helpful resources for Yosemite wildflower identification:
