We considered reports of the USFWS and CDFW, data in the California Natural Diversity Database (CDFW 2016a), and personal communications from other biologists who also observed the species.
This results in a substantial amount of seed germination within the circle of old leaves during the following year and with little seed germination beyond the circle (Chipping in USFWS 2014).

The lab suggests that you contact your state office of USFW, which conducts investigative and covert operations to follow up on leads.
The slice of the USFW budget that we get is only 2.
The contraband traffic in wild animals and wild animal parts is increasing rapidly, and the USFW lab is one of the few serious buffers helping to control it.
Unlike Oregon, who has chosen to remove beach vegetation to create habitat for Plovers, the USFW has ignored that creative approach in favor of shrinking the tiny park.
It's time for the Bush administration to investigate why USFW chooses to ignore the option of developing Plover habitat in the adjacent 13 miles of wildlife refuge versus continuing to fence the public out of a state legislated recreational park," said Jim Suty, President of Friends of Oceano Dunes.
Rather than applaud the phenomenal success at the park, one of the best in the state, a few radicals in the USFW have decided to make the RV camping area an experimental laboratory.
Blaming visitors, USFW heavy-handedly threatened criminal prosecution of State Parks officials, while ordering even more campground closure.
Boiled down, his argument was the USFWS and biologists are basically lying to all of us about the status of the duck population.
