Progress towards The Vascular Flora of Greater San Quintín, Baja California, Mexico.

Bahia de San Quintín is a diverse and relatively unspoiled region of the pacific coast, including near-pristine wetland environments, extensive dune systems and eleven volcanic cones with elevations up to 260 m. San Quintín itself is one of a series of rapidly expanding agricultural towns along the transpeninsular highway in northwestern Baja California, currently home to an estimated population of 50,000 people. Greater San Quintín has been delimited on the east by the transpeninsular highway, to the north by Rio Domingo to and to the south by Arroyo El Socorro, (including Isla de San Martin). Dudleya anthonyi is endemic to the bay of San Quintín; and several other species endemic to the state of Baja California and the peninsula are found within the study site. In order to inform conservation efforts in this region, a floristic inventory of Greater San Quintín has been initiated that aims to produce an annotated vouchered checklist for each of the habitats within this area which have been recently identified by the Nature Conservancy. Marismas (Salt Marsh); Dunas y playas (Dunes and Beaches); Arroyos y áreas riparias (Washes and riparian areas); Matorral rosetófilo costero (Coastal rosette-matorral). The range of each species will be vouchered with herbarium specimens that document the diversity of each habitat to be deposited at RSA-POM, BCMEX and SD. Seed accessions for as many species as possible, focusing on threatened and special status taxa where possible without impacting the populations, will be deposited in the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden long-term seed storage facility. Progress to date includes the collection of more than 380 specimens, 22 seed bank accessions being deposited from the mainland, and 68 specimens and 9 living collection accessions from Isla San Martín.
