It covered five prominent peaks in the Santa Lucia Range, Monterey County, and the tallest mountain in the Diablo Range, San Benito-Fresno counties. Listed are all species found above 1200 m (3937-feet) elevation on at least one peak. Relative abundance is estimated for three elevation zones on all peaks. Notes provide information about each species' life form, plant community preference, ecological characteristics, and taxonomic problems.
