Notes Glossary
  • Known from fewer than 20 occurrences. There are historical reports of introduced plants in MAD Co. Threatened by development, road construction, logging, vehicles, and overgrazing. Special management is necessary since reproduction is fire dependent. See Aliso 2(2):115-118 (1950) for species account, and Fremontia 10(4):21-22 (1983) for discussion of propagation.

      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.
