Notes

This introduced species is highly invasive in the western United States, flourishing in disturbed habitats and alkaline soils ( Holmgren 2003). It was commonly encountered along Cow Dung Road, and has flourished in the disturbed areas immediately surrounding MDRS (Fig. 24). This species was previously recorded for the nearby San Rafael Swell ( Harris 1983).
