Plants With Voucher Records for the Heart Bar State Park, Fish Creek Area of the San Bernardino Mountains in Calflora

These records were obtained from the Calflora Occurrences Library by:

  1. searching for records above 1800 m (5940 feet) in San Bernardino County from Calflora, which produced 4743 records; and then

  2. manually selecting all records that were within a distance of about five miles from the Aspen Grove Trailhead at Fish Creek. Such records usually contained words such as Fish Creek, South Fork, Santa Ana River, Sugarloaf Mountain (excluding records on its north slope) or San Gorgonio Mountain (excluding records on its south slope).

    For the Forest Service Plotlist Records, we selected all records within the region 34.04 to 34.21° latitude and 116.68 to 116.88° east latitude.

These selections produced 496 records for 146 taxa.

Note that this is a far from complete list, but it does indicate which species have been found in the area. For more specific information on any given record, consult Calflora Occurrences Library.

If there was only a single record, the elevation of that record is given in the Low Elevation column. If there was more than a single record, with differing elevations, the lowest and highest recorded elevation is given in the two elevation columns. Because the number of records is so small for each species, and is often only a single record, most species will undoubtedly be found significantly outside the range of elevations given here.

We updated some of the Forest Service names to conform with those used in the Jepson Manual.

Because the Forest Service observations are generally of lower quality than the vouchered observations, we mark the taxa below that come only from Forest Service observations. In addition, we question the validity of eight of the observations, and have moved them to the bottom of the table.

To convert meters to feet, multiply the numbers in the table by 3.28.
