Riparian Plants of New Mexico

Contributing to New Mexico's Riparian Plants Website

There are many riparian plant species in New Mexico and it takes a lot of time, effort, and money to find, photograph, and collect each species.; If you would like to help us add to our collection of photos for this website we would welcome your contributions. However, we must follow strict collection procedures and standard botanical protocols. This is to ensure the high quality of the photographs for the website as well as to ensure accurate identification of plant species.

For each plant listed in the New Mexico Riparian Plants Directory, there is an accompanying plant specimen housed in the New Mexico State Range Science Herbarium. By providing the information required on the Contribution Form (MSWord Doc or PDF) and following collection protocols, you will be contributing not only to the Riparian Plants Directory but also to the herbarium.
