Welcome to our Montana Field Guides.
These guides and this website are a collaborative effort between the
Montana Natural Heritage Program and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
The Animal Field Guide provides information on identification, habitat,
ecology, reproduction, range, and distribution of Montana's animals;
new features include a hierarchal approach to finding an animal of
interest, thumbnail photos of the animals and additional links.
The Plant Field Guide offers information on plant species of concern,
including references and photographs.
