Erigeron mancus elevational density gradient as a baseline to detect future climate change in LaSal Mountain habitats


Fowler, James F.; Smith, Barb. 2010. Erigeron mancus elevational density gradient as a baseline to detect future climate change in LaSal Mountain habitats. Final Report. Moab, UT: Canyonlands Natural History Association. Online: http://www.cnha.org/pdfs/ErigeronmancusReportfinal.pdf

The LaSal daisy, Erigeron mancus, is endemic to timberline and alpine habitats of the LaSal Mountains in Utah (Nesom 2006)(Fig. 1), an insular, laccolithic mountain range on the Colorado Plateau in southeastern Utah (Blakey and Ranney 2008). Erigeron mancus occurs in alpine herbaceous communities from timberline to the crestline of the Middle Group of the LaSals (Smith 2008) and is on the Forest Service Sensitive Plant Species List (USFS 2003). Prior to the current study little was known about the population biology of this species.
