  • Vegetation - California Native Plant Society
    of the CNPS Rare Plant Program proposed a parallel program to develop comparable information about California s plant communities The following year Professor Michael Barbour was invited to chair the committee known first as the Plant Communities Committee and now as the Vegetation Committee He established a group of about 25 individuals from academia conservation organizations environmental consulting companies and state and federal agencies Following four years of work by the committee the book A Manual of California Vegetation MCV was published by CNPS This book is the first edition of the State vegetation classification that the Program has adopted Recognizing the paucity of quantitative field data to support the definitions of vegetation types throughout much of the State the Program has developed vegetation sampling protocols and has trained numerous volunteers and agency staff in their use The vegetation program serves as a nexus for the accumulation and dissemination of information about California vegetation It coordinates a range of volunteer and agency involvement in vegetation conservation from grass roots field sampling by local CNPS chapters to focused work on individual vegetation types requiring definition to multi agency coordinated projects for broad scale mapping and classification of vegetation The program s principal responsibility is the maintenance and development of the CNPS vegetation classification which is embodied in the MCV It also is responsible for coordinating and integrating ecological sampling information on vegetation throughout the state The Program has developed digital databases known as the California Vegetation Information System CVIS and the Rapid Assessment database to accomplish these goals CVIS consists of two parts a sampling database which archives the vegetation samples collected by CNPS and other agencies and organizations and the Classification Database which houses the information on the descriptions of each of the vegetation types identified in the MCV By the end of 2009 we expect that Program staff and associates have entered in over 10 000 individual samples for the CVIS database The Rapid Assessment method also has its own database to archive vegetation samples providing additional species environmental and site quality information to characterize vegetation and habitats A Manual of California Vegetation The first edition of the manual published in 1995 has filled a long awaited void in California resource management It has been adopted as the standard vegetation classification by state and federal agencies such as The California Department of Fish and Game The United States Forest Service National Park Service and United States Geological Survey It is now also the standard reference for vegetation used by consulting firms and planners Please click on the following link for more information on A Manual of California Vegetation Program Staff and Leadership The Chair of the Vegetation Committee is the principal guide of the direction and goals of the Program The Current Chair Dr Todd Keeler Wolf is the vegetation ecologist with the Natural Diversity DataBase of the Department of Fish and Game s Wildlife and Habitat Data Analysis Branch Dr Keeler Wolf and Dr John Sawyer of Humboldt
