Flora of Foot and Walker Pass to Crime Canyon Area, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

Introduction

Fig. 1. Area of this flora. The black lines with the arrow tips outline the area searched for vouchers with coordinates. The dense blue diamonds show the route surveyed on 22 November 2014. The red solid line shows the route surveyed on 11 October 2013. Click on the map to get a larger version.

This list covers the area shown in Fig. 1, the northern parts of Blair Valley and Little Blair Valley and the hilly area to their north that includes Foot and Walker Pass, and the drainage to the east locally known as Crime Canyon.

This is an immature list, since we have never surveyed this area in prime time in a good year.

This list comes from:

Checklist for the Area

See Information about the order in which the species are presented, and the links from the Scientific Name and Common Name.

The column #V gives the number of vouchers for each taxon from the Consortium, with a maximum value of 9.

One entry, Eriogonum trichopes, E. clavatum is indeterminate since the voucher determination of E. trichopes was made before the two subspecies of it were elevated to two species in the Jepson Manual Second Edition.

The column #Pl gives a rough estimate of the minimum number of plants that we saw in the 22 November 2014 survey, 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.

Taxa without an entry in at least one of these columns were from the 11 October 2013 survey, or from observations in the Blair Valley Campground area.
