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