The Klamath Mountains provide homes for many plants, many not found anywhere else in the world. It's one of the most plant-diverse places on the continent. So it's a tall job to actually map the plants and where they grow, but such a project is underway.
Cal Poly-Humboldt students are assisting in the mapping, co-led by Forestry Professor Lucy Kerhoulas, with a boost from the California Native Plant Society.
