For this study, the flora of the northern section of the Lower Verde River, within the Tonto National Forest in Yavapai and Gila Counties, Arizona was documented and analyzed. The study site, part of the northern leading edge of the Sonoran Desert, encompasses about 16,000 hectares and is located approximately 45 miles north-northeast of Phoenix. The area, extends roughly 28 river miles from the East Verde River in the north to Chalk Mountain in the south and is largely only accessible by foot, or by boat, and as a result was previously extremely under-collected.
