This database contains geographic and ecological distribution information for California vascular plant taxa, as well as additional habitat information for rare taxa and species of the Sierra Nevada. It was compiled from two major sources, an electronic transcription of distribution and lifeform data from A California Flora and Supplement (Munz 1959 and 1968) and the CNPS Inventory of Rare and Endangered Vascular Plants of California (Skinner and Pavlick 1994, electronic version).

Alternatively, you can go to the list of Almaden wildflowers....
