According to A. Johnson (FNAI ecologist), the nature conservancy had an agreement with the Timberland Company in the 1980's.

The Hosford population has not been secured; the land was proposed for state acquisition in 2002 as a Florida Forever project (Hosford Chapman's Rhododendron Protection Zone).

Chapman's Rhododendron F 4 Panama City Ecological Services Field Office (850) 769-0552 Chapman rhododendron Rhododendron chapmanii 2 14 Proper management Ongoing Current U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Work type not yet selected Labor type not yet selected Management with prescribed fire has been implemented for the population at SJBSBP (Gulf Co. Buffer Preserve). This is done with a 3-5 yr interval burn rotation. The Camp Blanding staff cleared the encroaching vegetation at the Rhododendron site in 2005 and in subsequent 2008 and 2009 survey periods; prescribed fire is planned for 2010 (S. Oxenrider, 2010, pers. comm.). The Hosford population was burned in 2001 by The Nature Conservancy under a grant with the Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI); only 10 acres were burned (M. Jenkins, 2010, pers. comm.). The site appeared to have been burned in about 6-8 yr interval rotation. Presently, the Camp Blanding and the Hosford sites are in need of prescribed fire.

According to BTG, germination rates were high, but seedlings died around three months of age from unknown causes. Mychorrhizal association has been reported for other rhododendron species, therefore it is plausible that fungal colonization is important in the establishment and survival of Rhododendron m. chapmanii¿ seedlings.

Monitoring has not been implemented for the Hosford population. The Hosford and Gulf populations were surveyed by FNAI in 1996 in 6 plots initially set up by FNAI in 1985. In 2010 the pC botanist surveyed the Hosford population: 19 sites were revisited: 11 sites were found extirpated (clear cut), 5 new sites were documented.

The Plan suggested reintroducing cuttings from the collected plants to the wild in the areas where they were taken. Augmentation is not plausible at the moment because we don¿t have 1) the locations where these plants are currently growing; 2) an agreement with the private landowner to conduct this action; and 3) an assessment of the genetic variability within and among populations. Augmentation was also recommended for the Camp Blanding population if the number of clumps decreases below 20 per acre, and if the site shows a decline of more than 30% of rhododendrons after the initiation of monitoring. At present the population is composed of 31 clumps and seems to have been stable since 2005, thus augmentation is not currently necessary.

At present, this action could include a combination of aerial photographs to survey between Gadsden/Liberty counties and Clay County, and species distribution modeling methods to initially determine potential sites, with subsequent validation or inspection of the sites for plants and suitability of habitat.

This research will help determining whether seed are sexually produced and viable, and the importance of self vs. cross pollination. In-situ seed germination and seedling establishment have not been observed in the wild, consequently, if the established individuals are eliminated, they cannot re-establish themselves. The lack of in-situ germination appears to be a limiting factor for seedling recruitment in the wild; therefore, germination studies are needed.
