This study is an attempt to bring together such available material , heretofore not collected, into a single compilation pertaining to the plant associations of Utah and Salt Lake Valleys. An endeavor is made to build a picture of the vegetation as it was before the pioneers entered these valleys as compared with what it is today. The material compiled here is the result of searching through all available sources such as government reports of geological explorations, private diaries of explorers and pioneers , contemporary magazines, books and newspapers .
