Notes Glossary
  • Many historical occurrences have been extirpated. Threatened by alteration of fire regimes, development, and road maintenance. Possibly threatened by illegal dumping, fire suppression, and vehicles. Angeles NF has adopted species management guidelines. Plants in San Francisquito Cyn. (163D) are introduced. See Synoptical Flora of North America 1(1):69 (1895) for original description, and Journal of the Linnean Society of London 57(369):354 (1961) for revised nomenclature.

  • Notes:
      Definitions of codes preceding a county and/or quad:
      * Presumed extirpated
      ? Uncertain about distribution or identity
      ?* Uncertain about distribution, but presumed extirpated if once present
      (?) Occurrence confirmed, but possibly extirpated
      Species may be present in other areas where conditions are favorable. This data should NOT be substituted for pre-project review or for on-site surveys.
