Lewisia leeana Study Progress Report 2020

I presented a poster a the Northern California Botanists Symposium in Chico, CA, on January 14. see: http://www.sierrahiker.com/NorcalPoster14Jan2020small.jpg

I had my left hip replaced on June 5, which cut into my field season. At the suggestion of Chris Winchell who I met during the poster session in Chico, I visited Corral Mountain in the John Muir Wilderness on a three day hike in August. I found several more L. leeana plants, extending its distribution several miles to the north and east of the study area and increasing total observations in the area to 637.

Later that month, I spent four days in the Dinkey Lakes Wilderness extending L. leeana's distribution to the north. The area was very dry and no L. leeana plants were blooming. The plants were easy enough to ID but most of them were in horrible shape. Alpine gentian was thriving and almost made up for the sorry state of the L. leeana plants.
