The Flora of the PCT
San Gabriel Mountains D7, Islip Saddle to Eagles Roost

See The Flora of the PCT San Gabriel Mountains D7, Islip Saddle to Eagles Roost for an introduction to this checklist.

This version of the Checklist gives the plant species in plant family order, with the Family and Scientific Name are from the 2012 Second Edition Jepson Manual.

The column #Pl gives a rough estimate of the minimum number of plants that we saw, with a maximum value of 99 plants. The main intent of this column is to indicate the species for which we found very few plants. An x indicates no estimate of the plant abundance was made.

The scientific name is linked to the latest online Jepson Manual description for each species, which also gives the months in which each species flowers. That link also gives a map of where the species occurs in California; a plot of elevation vs. latitude for California; and a histogram of the voucher collections by month.

A few species may not have working links, if their names have been updated more recently (such as Mimulus diffusus, which is still listed under M. palmeri in the online flora), or if they are reserved-judgment taxa which are listed in the entry for another taxon name. However, as of 16 January 2013, the Jepson Manual links were updated to link to the parent species for the taxa without their own entries. Taxa linked to anything other than the Jepson Manual link for the full scientific name used below are discussed here. On 8 November 2013, the links for Chamaesyce species were updated to the new online name of Euphorbia, while retaining the Chamaesyce name in the Checklist below, to conform to the printed version of the Second Edition Jepson Manual.

The common name for most species in the checklist is linked to Calphotos to give pictures of most taxa. Of course, there is no guarantee that the Calphotos pictures are correctly identified.

Note that the link will not always return pictures, since not every species has pictures at Calphotos, and a number of species still have their Calphotos pictures under the Jepson Manual First Edition Names. Some links have been made to the Calphotos pictures using the First Edition Jepson Manual name, if there are no pictures under the Second Edition name. Of course, that may result in a link with no pictures if those the names of those Calphotos pix are updated in the future to the Second Edition names.

Note also that the links below will return only the specified taxon at Calphotos, and not any subtaxa; i.e., a link to Cryptantha barbigera will not return photos of Cryptantha barbigera var. barbigera. There may be additional pictures at Calphotos under a different scientific name such as the First Edition Jepson Manual name.

Some links, such as for Boechera perennans, go to special pages with more information on those species.

If you find any links from either the scientific or common names below that do not work, please let us know so we can update them.
