PORE, in Feb 2011 conducted a large-scale dune restoration project just south of Abbott's Lagoon. Through the Abbotts Lagoon Coastal Dune Restoration Project, 80 acres of European beachgrass and 1 acre of iceplant were removed from approximately 200 acres of coastal dune. This project should have indirect benefits for Lupinus tidestromii by removing habitat for (artificially elevated numbers of) seed predators that threaten the existing Abbotts Lagoon population and allowing for natural sand movement, as well as some direct benefits for this species and Layia carnosa by creating new habitat for these species. Also, for the benefit of Chorizanthe valida, in Dec 2010, more than 10 acres of yellow bush lupine was removed (which is known to facilitate invasion by non-native species by increasing nitrogen and organic content). Various habitat restoration has been ongoing for Erysimum menziesii and Layia carnosa around Humboldt Bay, conducted by the FWS and BLM, and nonprofits. In late summer 2011, 80 acres of European beachgrass and iceplant were removed from 190 acres of dunes. In addition, treatment began in fall 2011 of an additional 28.1 acres of beachgrass and iceplant norht and south of the above area.

Seven Coastal Plants and the Myrtle's Silverspot Butterfly Recovery Plan F 8 Ventura Fish and Wildlife Office (805) 644-1766 Menzies' wallflower Erysimum menziesii 1 3.21 Obtain life history and response-to-management data for the listed plants Partially Complete FY 2000 - FY 2004 Other To be determined Work type not yet selected Labor type not yet selected (1) Grant agreement between FWS and UCSC (~$20,000+ including UCSC contribution) for management-oriented research on seed dormancy and soil seed banks of Monterey spineflower and Monterey (sand) gilia; 2003 - 2006. (2) Multi-year project to clarify taxonomic relationships of Chorizanthes in Monterey/SCruz region, 2004-2005; $17,500 expended for all taxa. (DMS, VFWO, 2005). In Dec 2010, an historic ranch road on G Ranch was re-aligned out of the main population of Chorizanthe valida, and in winter 2010-2011, five new populations of Chorizanthe valida were introduced from seed into historic habitat (with much success!). In August 2010, 334 seeds were collected from 24 individuals of this species (at the natural and reintroduced populations) and sent to the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden which in turn sent half to the National Center for Genetic Resources Preservation in Denver, CO and half to the Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden in Claremont, CA. Genetic study by Brinegar and Baron (2009) indicates that C. pungens/C. robusta complex is genetically very similar, and that taxonomic revision to include all varieties of this complex as two varieties of C. pungens may be warranted in the future (Lena Chang 7/29/2010). Extensive research conducted on life history of Erysimum menziesii, Layia carnosa and Chorizanthe howelii over the past decade. Multi-agency life history study on Layia carnosa initiated fall 2011 to compare plant and reproductive vigor of the species between the optimal sites for the species (e.g., Humboldt bay, Mattole River)and sites located at the fringes of the distribution in order to determine if recovery goals for the outlier sites are realistic and feasible.

Layia carnosa is monitored by National Parks, Pt Reyes NS, BLM, USFWS, CA State Parks, Vandenberg AFB and several NGO's across the range. Research including a comparison of critical life history functions across the range will be implemented winter 2011 to determine if recovery goals for populations at the limits of its range are feasible to achieve. A population estimate was made for the first time in 2011 of Chorizanthe howellii at McKerricher State Park, Mendocino County. Monitoring of C. vallida and Lupinus is ongoing at Point Reyes National Park. The Army conducts regular monitoring of Monterey spineflower and gilia on Former Fort Ord lands. Chorizanthe valida and Lupinus tidestromii are both surveyed annually. The final totals are not in for Lupinus tidestromii, but in response to the major invasives removal going on, Pt Reyes Nat. Seashore detected 15,884 new plants and at least 25% of them flowered and set seed. Of the 80 acres of dunes that were flipped (restored), 15.8 acres turned up with new plants. Very successful. In regards to Chorizanthe valida, numbers were much lower than in 2011. Totals within the only natural population were 95,460 plus or minus 39,099 compared to 370,740 plus or minus 63,038 in 2011 and 958,380 plus or minus 264,416 in 2010. Plants within the reintroduction areas also numbered much lower than in 2011. 5.1-1 Genetics study and taxonomic review of the Menzies' wallflower complex Ongoing Current 2012 Labor type not yet selected Work type not yet selected Contract funded by BLM initiated to review taxonomy and conduct genetics investigation of the Menzies' wallflower complex including E. concinnum, as recommended in the past 5-year status review
