The present study was undertaken to investigate the diatom flora of a major river in northern Utah, to determine the diatom species present, and to illustrate them in a manner useful for future diatom researchers in the intermountain region. It is hoped that this work will aid in algal productivity, ecological, and taxonomic studies of Rocky Mountain streams and rivers.
