Plants of Garner Valley and Thomas Mountain
Compiled by Erik Blume
This list gives all the taxa found for the Garner Valley and Thomas Mountain area from online vouchers available from the Consortium of California Herbaria.
On a few days around 20 November 2006, I searched for vouchers from Riverside County that contained any of the following localities: Kenworthy, Thomas Valley, Hemet Valley, Garner Valley, Quinn Flat and Thomas Mountain. I compiled a list of the unique taxa names from those vouchers. I then removed taxa determined only to the species level if there were other vouchers given to subspecific levels. Vouchers for Quercus dumosa were removed, since the correct determination for those vouchers is unclear.
On 18 December 2006, I added a few species I had inadvertently omitted from the Hemet Valley search, and have been adding species off and on as I come across them.
Statistics of the list as of 13 January 2007:
Category # of Taxa Taxa vouchered with current names 358 Taxa vouchered without a current name, not used for this list 69 Taxa vouchered with older names which were updated to current names 46 Vouchered names which were rejected or not resolved to a current name 20 Total taxa included in the list 381
Taxa added to the list as of 13 January 2007 that are unvouchered, but have been seen by myself in Garner Valley:
Cirsium occidentale var. californicum
List Of Vouchered Names Which Were Rejected
These names were rejected primarily, but not always, because they did not match names in Tom Chester's southern California database. This list is as of 3 February 2007.
