Flora of the Four Corners Region

Vascular Plants of the San Juan River Drainage: Arizona,
Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah

Author: Kenneth D. Heil, Steve L. OKane Jr., Linda Mary Reeves, Arnold Clifford

The Flora of the Four Corners describes all of those species, subspecies, and varieties of vascular plants that grow spontaneously in the drainage basin of the San Juan River, a major tributary of the Colorado River. This region takes in major portions of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah, and is centered on the Four Corners, the only spot in the United States where four states meet at a common point. The entire area encompasses 65,382 square kilometers (25,244 square miles), an area the size of West Virginia or Connecticut and about half the size of Alabama, Arkansas, New York, or North Carolina. The highest point is 4292 m (14,083 feet) at Mt. Eolus in the San Juan Mountains and the lowest point is 1130 m (3708 feet) where the San Juan River flows into Lake Powell (the Colorado River). Because of this elevation gradient, and the varying climates produced by local topography, vegetation in the study area varies from alpine tundra to coniferous forests, mountain shrublands, lowland sagebrush, blackbrush, and to the sparse communities seen on bare rocks and the scorching sides of low-elevation canyons.
