Where can I find information about wild edible plants in Montana?
There is an excellent source on the Montana Plant Life webpage. The edible plants are divided into the following categories: Berries, Seeds, Leaves, Stems, Flowers, Roots, and Spices. There is a description of the plant with photographs and the plant's distribution. There is a description of the edible portions (with cautionary notes) and how the plants have been used tradtionally.
Here are some print sources for information about edible plants in general and edible plants in the West:
1. Gregory L. Tilford. 1997. Edible and Medicinal Plants of the West. Mountain Press Publishing. 2. Thomas Elias and Peter Dykeman. 1990. Edible Wild Plants. Sterling Publishing. 3. Betty Derig and Margaret Fuller. 2001. Wild Berries of the West. Mountain Press Publishing.
