Technical Abstract: The Colorado Plateau region is in need of more diverse choice of forbs for revegetation. Legumes native to the Colorado Plateau provide a great source of biodiversity, pollinator habitat, forage quality for wildlife, and include the ability to fix nitrogen in symbiosis with soil fungi. Searls' prairie clover and Utah lotus are two such legumes. In this presentation, we show how collections within these two species are related, and how their phenotypes correlate with collection site characteristics.
