This site is being created by me, Lee Dittmann, compiling data obtained from the sources listed in References and published by Mindbird Maps & Books of Kingman, Arizona.

Thanks to Dave Hildebrand of San Jose, California, for the loan (and later, gift) of his Nikon SLR, with which most of my closeup photos on this site were made prior to early May 2004.

Thanks to former National Park Service co-worker David J. Benson of Fairport, New York for the gift of his Minolta Maxxum SLR; most of my images from June-August 2005 were made with this camera, especially the closeups.  (Since 2004, I have also been using a Fujifilm Finepix S5000 digital camera, though it took several years before I learned to take great closeups with it.)

Thanks to Jeff Zolotar of the San Francisco Bay Area for the gift of his Minolta X-700 SLR camera, which I began to use in January 2006.

Thanks to Larry Haimowitz of San Jose, California for the gift of his Olympus E-300 SLR digital camera, including macro lens with extension tube; extreme closeups and most other closeups on this website dated November 2007 and later originated from this camera, which has provided a great leap in image quality.

Thanks to Max Licher of Sedona, Arizona, for providing distributional notes and corrections as the plant catalog takes form, and the use of some of his images.

Thanks to Dwight Klaus for permission to use his images of Chenopodium graveolens.

Thanks to the Arizona Native Plant Society, for providing a grant in support of the development of this website.
