The study of the East Tintic Mountains was undertaken because no extensive research concerning the plant species present has ever been done. The East Tintic Mountains are in central Utah in Juab, Utah and Tooele Counties. They are about fifty five air miles south-southwest of Salt Lake City. The range is approximately forty two miles long and from one and one-half miles to twelve miles wide. An attempt was made to collect representatives of all vascular plants found on the mountain range. This work presents two hundred and eleven species, representing fifty two families.
