The need for a new monographic treatment of the genus Lesquerella (mustard family) has been evident for many years. Authors Reed Rollins and Elizabeth Shaw summarize three decades of field, greenhouse, and herbarium research in this detailed study of the North American species of the genus, including L. arctica.
