Notes Glossary
  • Move to CRPR 2 or 4? Location and rarity information needed. Many herbarium specimens of T. canescens not determined to variety; annotations needed, yet difficult to distinguish between varieties in dried material; needs study. Many occurrences historical; need field surveys. Known only from the Sonoran Desert. Threatened by solar and wind energy development. Possibly threatened by military activities and vehicles. See Journal of the Arnold Arboretum 20(3):379 (1939) for original description, and Sida 6(3):235-240 (1976) for taxonomic treatment.

  • 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.
Includes unprocessed quads for CRPR 3 and 4 plants; unprocessed location data has not been quality controlled and may contain errors.
