Alaska Plant Identification?

Identification of Alaskan plants is not that difficult for anyone who
can use a taxonomic key and can recognize some major families. There
just aren't that many species up there!  Hulten's _Flora of Alaska_ is
a terrific reference, especially if you can find one of the
illustrated editions.  The nomenclature may be a bit out of date, but
you can always cross-reference with one of the on-line sources such as
the BONAP checklist at http://www.csdl.tamu.edu/FLORA/b98/check98.htm
