Checklist for Pena Spring Area, Culp ValleyArea

See:

The column with header Fam gives the first three letters of the plant family name. See Plant Family Abbreviations.

An asterisk before the common name indicates a non-native species.

The column with header #Pls gives the minimum number of plants seen for each observed species, up to a maximum of 99 plants. If we didn't observe a species, but it was vouchered, a V is present in the appropriate column. If this column contains FC, it was an additional species observed by Fred Melgert and Carla Hoegen for which no abundance estimate was made. If this column contains iNat, there was an iNaturalist observation of a species not found in vouchers or the field surveys by us or Fred and Carla. A ~ or ? with the entry indicates that there is uncertainty about the species determination.

Version for printing, without 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)
