CoNPS Field Trip Plant lists, Dichotomous Keys and Websites
The first tab below contains lists of plants identified on CoNPS field trips dating back to 1992. These have been compiled and placed on the SEINet website.
The second tab contains dichotomous keys that CoNPS botanists have created for worshops in the past to assist in identifying particularly difficult genera and plant families.
The third tab will take you to descriptions of, and links to, a pair of wonderful websites created by two of our CoNPS members.
Every field season, from March through October, our ten CoNPS Chapters offer field trips all over the state. On many of these field trips, enterprising volunteers compile lists of the plants identified that day. We have loaded some of these plant inventories into SEINET so that people can download them and have lists available when they visit a site.
Here are some dichotomous plant keys to some of the more interesting but troublesome plant families, genera in Colorado, and a vegetative key to the willows.
Here are two wonderful websites of Colorado native plants by two CoNPS members, Al Schneider, whose website covers Southwest Colorado Wildflowers, and Ernie Marks, whose website covers Eastern Colorado Wildflowers.
