Recovery Plan for Fritillaria gentneri (Gentner's Fritillary) F 1 Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (503) 231-6179 Gentner's Fritillary Fritillaria gentneri 1 2.3 Secure habitat Ongoing Current FY 2006 Other U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, City of Jacksonville and Jacksonville Woodlands Association, Oregon Department of Agriculture - Plant Conservation Program, Forest Service Acquisition: General, Acquisition: Lease, Acquisition: Easement, Acquisition: Management Agreement Internal Administrative Oregon: The FWS and ODA were able to secure 9 acres of habitat in 2005. Approximately 350 acres of suitable fritillary habitat near Sam's Valley and the Table Rocks area in Jackson County, Oregon came under TNC ownership in FY 2009. This will likely be an ongoing action as land protection opporunities arise. Approximately 5 acres of occupied suitable habitat came into conservation easements with a local land trust in 2012.

During a Gentner's fritillary recovery workshop conducted in 2010, it was determined by participants that adaptive habitat management was one of the most important recovery actions. The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument plan and Table Rocks Management Plan, both administered by Medford BLM will monitor management and its effect on the species.

Recovery Plan for Fritillaria gentneri (Gentner's Fritillary) F 1 Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (503) 231-6179 Gentner's Fritillary Fritillaria gentneri 2 3.5 Research the extent and distribution of genetic diversity Complete FY 2000 - FY 2004 FY 2008 Other U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Oregon Department of Agriculture - Plant Conservation Program, Forest Service Research: Genetics Graduate Student, Contract Medford BLM and Southern Oregon University funded a genetic research project that was completed in 2004, but the techniques were not current to modern standards. In 2006 and 2007, students at OSU conducted research on fritillary hybridization and genetic diversity throughout its range. So far research determined the plant is of hybrid origin and while intrapopulation crosses do not typically yield seed, these interpopulation crosses do produce viable seed. The results of a new molecular study is slated for 2019 that will greatly assist the genetic makeups of serveral key fritillary populations, that often do not flower.
Recovery Plan for Fritillaria gentneri (Gentner's Fritillary) F 1 Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (503) 231-6179 Gentner's Fritillary Fritillaria gentneri 2 3.6 Research off-site cultivation from bulblets Complete FY 2000 - FY 2004 Other U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, City of Jacksonville and Jacksonville Woodlands Association, Oregon Department of Agriculture - Plant Conservation Program, Forest Service Research: Propagation Graduate Student, Contract ODA has intesively researched cultivation methods. New discoveries in Fritillary propagation will continue. ODA has determined very good methods to cultivate bulblets and now set the standard for Frilillaria gentneri cultivation and propagation. We consider this action complete.

Herbert Stone Nursery. If seed is able to be produced, then seed will be banked at Rae Selling Berry Seed Bank.
Recovery Plan for Fritillaria gentneri (Gentner's Fritillary) F 1 Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (503) 231-6179 Gentner's Fritillary Fritillaria gentneri 3 3.3 Develop methods to distinguish nonflowering plants Discontinued FY 2000 - FY 2004 Other U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, City of Jacksonville and Jacksonville Woodlands Association, Oregon Department of Agriculture - Plant Conservation Program, Forest Service Research: Taxonomic Studies, Research: Genetics Internal Field Assistance The Service funded ODA in 2016, via section 6 grants, to look at molecular variation in F. gentneri populations. This information will help estimate the extent of non-flowering F. gentneri, F. affinis or F. recurva in each population. This is expecially helpful when fritillary plants do not fower.
Recovery Plan for Fritillaria gentneri (Gentner's Fritillary) F 1 Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (503) 231-6179 Gentner's Fritillary Fritillaria gentneri 3 3.7 Research potential for sexual reproduction Complete FY 2000 - FY 2004 FY 2007 Other U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, City of Jacksonville and Jacksonville Woodlands Association, Oregon Department of Agriculture - Plant Conservation Program, Forest Service Research: Propagation, Research: Genetics Graduate Student, Contract Funded by FWS grants, ODA has completed this action. Fritillaria is fertile and produces fertile seed when source populations occur from disparate locations (interpopulation crosses).
Recovery Plan for Fritillaria gentneri (Gentner's Fritillary) F 1 Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (503) 231-6179 Gentner's Fritillary Fritillaria gentneri 3 3.8 Determine if hybrid Complete FY 2000 - FY 2004 FY 2007 Other U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, City of Jacksonville and Jacksonville Woodlands Association, Oregon Department of Agriculture - Plant Conservation Program, Forest Service Research: Propagation, Research: Genetics Graduate Student, Contract The FWS and Medford BLM funded different aspects of this project. The ODA submitted a final report in FY2007 that determined Fritillaria gentneri resulted from hybrid origin, but has fertile pollen and ovules and is capable of sexual reproduction. Except forr a few cases, the plant also appears to be incapable of intrapopulation crossing, meaning it can only cross with outside populations to produce viable seed.
Recovery Plan for Fritillaria gentneri (Gentner's Fritillary) F 1 Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (503) 231-6179 Gentner's Fritillary Fritillaria gentneri 3 3.9 Determine feasibility of bulb salvage Complete FY 2000 - FY 2004 FY 2008 Other U.S. Bureau of Land Management, Oregon Department of Agriculture - Plant Conservation Program Research: Propagation Graduate Student, Internal Field Assistance ODA has determined fritillary bulbs and bulblets can be collected, grown to full plants and a high percentage survive if planted in appropriate suitable micro-habitat. It is not completely understood what habitat produces the best results. Current Fritillary gentneri bulb plantings have achieved approximately 48% success.
Recovery Plan for Fritillaria gentneri (Gentner's Fritillary) F 1 Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (503) 231-6179 Gentner's Fritillary Fritillaria gentneri 3 4.1 Develop offsite storage methods Ongoing Current FY 2000 - FY 2004 Other U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, City of Jacksonville and Jacksonville Woodlands Association, Oregon Department of Agriculture - Plant Conservation Program, Forest Service Research, Research: Propagation, Research: Reintroduction Graduate Student, Contract, Internal Technical Assistance Offsite storage of bulblets will continue, but ownership will transfer from ODA to Forest Service and BLM at the J Herbert Stone Nursery in the next year. The action is complementary to action 2.432.
Recovery Plan for Fritillaria gentneri (Gentner's Fritillary) F 1 Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (503) 231-6179 Gentner's Fritillary Fritillaria gentneri 3 5.0 Review and revise plan Ongoing Current FY 2014 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, City of Jacksonville and Jacksonville Woodlands Association, Oregon Department of Agriculture - Plant Conservation Program, Forest Service Other Species Expert, Contract In 2014 and 2015 Fritillaria gentneri recovery working group met and discussed the recovery plan.
