Saussurea triangulata

From Botanical Knowledge
Jump to: navigation, search


In North America Saussurea triangulata is known only from the Waring Mountains of northwestern Alaska, where it was discovered in the late 1990s. I provisionally recognize the Waring Mountains plants as a disjunct population of S. triangulata pending examination of additional material from both Alaskan and Siberian populations.
