    Abstract: Inventory and assessment of vegetation for the Pioneer Mountains including conservation recommendations. Study area covered approximately 100,000 acres. The objectives of the study were to (1) prepare a high resolution, comprehensive vegetation map for the study area at the scale of 1:24,000; (2) provide documentation of the composition and structure of major vegetative cover types; (3) conduct rare plant inventories; (4) identify unique, rare, or outstanding exemplary stands of vegetation; (5) provide recommendations for management and monitoring within the study area. Thirty-seven deciduous forest and woodland, shrubland, and perennial graminoid plant associations were observed in upland environments.
