A manuscript version of this poster was reviewed by Tim Ross (Rancho Santa Ana Herbarium), whose suggestions improved it immeasurably. The impetus to investigate the coastal priarie was given by a plant list assembled by Andrew Sanders (UCR Herbarium). Barry Prigge, Allan Schoenherr, Chris Nagano, Fred Roberts and Gary Wallace have given encouragement and helpful suggestions. The UCLA Herbarium and Rancho Santa Ana Herbarium gave gracious access to collections and primary materials. Research reported here was supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship to Travis Longcore. All errors are the responsibility of the authors.
