California Threatened and Endangered Plant Profiles

CDFW has created a series of web pages summarizing the status, threats, and recovery actions needed for several plant species designated as threatened or endangered pursuant to the California Endangered Species Act. CDFW will post pages for additional species as they are created. Information on the status of threatened and endangered plant species is also available in The Status of Rare, Threatened, and Endangered Plants of California from 2000-2004 (PDF).

For more information on any of the topics above, please contact nativeplants@wildlife.ca.gov.
