After adjusting for synonyms and misdeterminations, 279 species in 89 genera are documented herein for the Mojave Desert.  This catalog is based on species lists reported in nine peer reviewed publications and includes a general overview of the Mojave Desert in terms of climate, environmental sensitivity, vegetation, and geology.  It also includes brief information about each of the eight general collection areas (two papers cover the same study area), as well as a summary discussion of the Mojave Desert lichen flora.
