Abstract

The herbaceous Atriplex species which occur in Utah are revised. This study is based on herbarium specimens and field observations throughout the state. My treatment largely follows that of Rall and Clements (1923). A brief discussion of the history, diagnostic characteristics and phylogeny is given. A descriptive key that includes all taxa has been prepared: type locality, synonyms, general habitat and distribution is reported for each entity. Illustrations and maps are included. One variety is described as new.
