  The Klamath Mountains: A Natural History

Front FINAL webMichael Kauffmann and Justin Garwood are the co-editors of a new book entitled The Klamath Mountains: A Natural History. The Klamath Mountains contain some of the most exceptional temperate plant communities in the world. Within its geographic boundaries, over 3,500 taxa (species, subspecies, and varieties) of vascular plants occur, including 35 conifer species and 20 species of oak. Michael and Justin will provide an overview of the Klamath Mountains, highlighting the plant communities across the region, and Michael will share photos of the rare and unusual plants that call the Klamath Mountains home.
