Table of contents
This manual has benefited from the assistance and advice from many people. Their knowledge of vegetation, philosophical views of classification, and hard mental and physical labor on this project has made this book is better than it would have been without them. No one person knows enough about California vegetation to write a book of this nature by themselves. We have relied upon many people for contributions of data, review of drafts, and distribution of the drafts. We would like to thank them individually:
Annette Albert, Sarah Allen, Barbara Allen-Diaz, Michael Barbour, Ed Biery, Bruce Bingham, Roxanne Bittman, Mignonne Bivin, Mark Borchert, David Bramlet, Dan Cheatham, David Chipping, Jane Cole, Charles Convis, Max Creasy, Ellen Cypher, Bruce Delgado, Wayne Ferren, JoAnn Fites, Chris Gillespie, Claire Tipple Golec, Hazel Gordon, Jim Griffin, Robert Haller, Steve Hartman, Duane Haselfeld, Sylvia Haultain, Deborah Hillyard, Ken Himes, Julie Horenstein, Marc Hoshovsky, John Hunter, Tom Jimerson, Jim Jokerst, Michelle Kanoart, Jon Keeley, Melody Lardner, Lori Lawrentz, Kari Lewis, Sally Manning, Corky Matthews, Richard Minnich, Marlyce Myers, Tom Oberbauer, Dennis Odion, Bruce Orr, Oren Pollak, Don Potter, Robert Preston, Cynthia Roye, Connie Rutherford, Andy Sanders, Jim Shevock, Jim Smith, Sydney Smith, Janine Stenback, Joan Stewart, Neil Sugihara, Kathy Thomas, Kenneth Turner, Felicity Wasser, Scott White, Roy Woodward, Paul Zedler.
Special appreciation goes to Michael Barbour, Bruce Bingham, Mark Borchert, Hazel Gordon, Joan Stewart, and Scott White for detailed reviews of various drafts and to Jim Shevock for reviews, production, and layout assistance.
