    Monitoring Notes
    Received draft monitoring report in 2006, primarily to assess the population status of the plant after the Warm fire. The fire (lightning caused) burned very intensely in occupied habitat and plants and habitat were destroyed. In general, population trends for this species are down.
    Additional Notes
    10-yr CA. Incorporates a mgmt strategy for actions on Federal lands. Removed need to list. Reclass. Notice pub 4/2/98. The Forest (Kaibab) has requested that the CAA be revised. We are starting work on a revision and hope to meet at least once or twice in FY 08 to work on a revision.
