North Dakota's vegetation studies offer vast amounts of information on the plants and communities of the state. They cover the spectrum of pure and applied vegetation sciences - from range management to environmental impact to succession theory - and have correspondingly broad utility.
This great information resource represents an important bibliographic topic because its pertinent references are widely scattered. A bibliography of North Dakota vegetation could facilitate information exchange between pure and applied disciplines. It could help in the dissemination of important results and conclusions from unpublished works. It could simplify the task of designing research and management projects to build on earlier research to the fullest extent.
Recognizing these needs, this bibliography was developed as a preliminary vegetation reference guide for biologists who deal with any aspect of native vegetation research and management in North Dakota. References in the bibliography have been incorporated from the entire spectrum of botany and related management sciences. Particular emphasis was placed on citing unpublished theses. Also included are those publications on the physical environment which are most frequently cited in North Dakota botanical publications.
The geographic scope of the bibliography includes all of North Dakota. Those references from adjoining states and provinces concern the same physiographic regions or vegetation types as might be found in North Dakota.
In the bibliography, citations are listed alphabetically by author. Following the bibliography, there is a cross-referencing of all the citations under one or more topic headings. They are further split by subheadings such as "grassland", "woodland", and "aquatic", where appropriate.
This bibliography represents an on-going effort of the North Dakota Natural Heritage Program which is to be periodically updated. Information on any new literature and on any inaccuracies or omissions in this edition would be greatly appreciated.
