    Description

    "The Box" is a canyon located in the western portion of Box-Death Hollow Wilderness Area, Garfield County, southern Utah. The objectives of this study included: (1) collect, identify and make a checklist of the species of vascular plants found in "The Box," (2) search for threatened and endangered species within the area, (3) provide an opportunity for high school students to develop research skills that contribute to the reservoir of scientific information. During a period of 2 years, students of the Provo High School Botany Club, the club advisor, and others collected and identified 304 species in 63 families. Twenty plant taxa collected during this study had not previously been reported for Garfield County, UT. Species-area relationships at this area are compared to selected locations in Utah.
