The Flora of the PCT: A3 Lake Morena to Highway 80 (Boulder Creek Campground): Area Flora

See The Flora of the PCT: A3 Lake Morena to Highway 80 (Boulder Creek Campground) for an introduction to this checklist.

This version of the Checklist gives the plant species from the trail, as well as from vouchers from the surrounding area, in plant family order, with the Family and Scientific Name from the 2012 Second Edition Jepson Manual.

The column #V gives the number of vouchers for this area, with a maximum value of 9.

The column #Trl gives the species number in order along the trail where each species was first seen, from Lake Morena to Highway 80 (Boulder Creek Campground). The number is preceded by an indication of the uncertainty of the determination; see abbreviation for the determination uncertainties. Species that were not seen in the field survey, but which were vouchered from or near the trail, have a V in this column.

See Information about the links from the Scientific Name and Common Name.

Version for printing, without lines and other text on this page: html (8 pages) or pdf Clickbook booklet (2 double-sided pages). (See printing instructions for an explanation of these options)
