Description:
SOURCE OF DATA FOR THIS DATA BASE - The original plant list was taken from Thomas Manthey's masters thesis (see reference list below). The following changes are made continuously to this list: * Species are added. - This list is augmented by Sevilleta scientists asplants new to the list are collected on the Sevilleta NWR. * Some taxa are renamed. - Some older names for certain taxa are changed. For example, these conserved family names were replaced: Gramineae became Poaceae, Leguminosae became Fabaceae and Compositae became Asteraceae. The Ephedra were put into Ephedraceae instead of Gnetaceae. Krameria was moved from the Leguminosae to theKrameriaceae. Additional changes will be logged in this file. * Some plant species were taken off of the list - The original thesis plant list covered the Sevilleta National Wildlife refuge and the Ladron Mountains. Since this list is designed to represent only the Sevilleta Refuge proper, species that occur on the mountain and not on the Sevilleta were removed (These are listed below). There are still species in this data base that no doubt fall into this category but it is unreliable to say a plant does not occur in a certain place because you have not seen it and do not think that it is there. When thorough collections of the Sevilleta have been made then this list will more closely reflect the true list of plant species on the Sevilleta.  The collection field was added to this data base so the species that have been collected can be monitored. * The photosynthetic_pathway, life-form and life cycle data were collected from the references listed below by Troy Maddux in 1989.  The abbreviation codes were produced by Troy Maddux in 1989 as well and existed as a separate file. The codes were put into this data base as a field when the data base was created in early 1992.REFERENCE LIST Correl, D.S., and M.C. Johnston. 1970. Manual of the Vascular plants of Texas.

Photosynthetic_pathway(3) - This field represents the way in which plants fix carbon in the process of photosysthesis. C3 = This is the Calvin/Benson cycle. C4 = This is the Hatch/Slack pathway. CAM = This represents Crassulacean Acid Metabolism *Missing data are represented by a "na." Life_cycle(3) - The life cycle field represents the longevity of a plant species. a = annual ab = annual or biennial ap = annual or perennial ap- = annual or short-lived perennial b = biennial bp = biennial or perennial bp- = biennial or short-lived perennial p- = short-lived perennial p = perennial *Missing data are represented by a "?" Life_form(3) - This field represents the form or physiognomy of a plant species. G = grass - Plants in the family Poaceae. H = herb - Plants that have no woody tissue.(the distinction between This and subshrub can be fuzzy since woody tissue at the caudex (right at the ground) would technically be considered a subshrub but this is often overlooked when the plant is mostly herbaceous.) HV = herbaceous vine - A climbing or trailing plant with no woody tissue rp = root parasite - A plant which is parasitic on other plant's roots. S = shrub - A woody plant that usually has several-to-many main branches. (See Tree for problems.) sp = stem parasite - A plant that is parasitic on the stems of another plant. ss = subshrub - A plant that is woody just near the base or a plant that is woody throughout its stem structure but smaller than a meter. ST = shrub or tree - A plant that sometimes grows in a shrub-like form and sometimes grows as a (usually small) tree. T = tree - A woody plant that generally has one main stem. The distinction between trees and shrubs can be dubious. For example, Juniperus monosperma (one-seeded juniper) is usually considered a tree even though it is generally multistemmed. su = succulent - A plant with water-storage tissues. V = vine - A climbing or trailing plant in which the woodiness is not known by the database manager. WV = woody vine - A woody trailing or climbing plant. *Missing data are represented by a "?". Sspecies_code(5) - A four- or five-letter code which represents a particular plant species and is unique within the group of the Sevilleta plant species. This code is created by taking the first two letters of the genus and the first two letters of the specific epithet of a plant's scientific name to make a four-letter code. If duplicate four-letter codes are created then a number two was added to the less common of the two codes. (Troy Maddux, previous LTER plant specialist, decided which species were less commonon the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge.) If three duplicates occurredthen one code got a "2" after it and the next got a "3". Below is an example: semu Senecio multicapitatus semu2 Senecio multilobatus semu3 Selaginella mutica These abbreviations are used to represent plant species in field work and in data entry. Sgenus(16) - The taxon of plant genus as it was known to Sevilleta LTER researchers. The genus and the species combined create the binomial which is the scientific name of a plant. Sspecies(20) - The specific epithet of a plant and with the genus makes up the scientific name of a plant. Svariety_subspecies(20) - Subspecific taxa including varieties and subspecies. They are represented thus: Subspecies: subsp._ambiguus Variety: var._scopulorum Affinity: aff._grisea Scommon_name(26) - The common or vernacular name for a plant species. These names are highly unreliable for delimiting a specific taxon but are useful in communication with those unfamiliar with the scientific names. *Missing data are represented by a "na". collection(3) - Indicates whether a speces has been collected on the Sevilleta by: Thomas Manthey, the Sevilleta LTER, or others. m = Manthey Collection. (If the collection was made within the Sevilleta boundaries.) s = Sevilleta LTER Collection. o = Other Collection. X = No known collection on the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge. native(1) - Indicates whether the species is native or introduced to the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge. y = Yes the plant is native. n = No, not native. X = Status unknown. species_code(5) - A four- five- or six-letter code which represents a particular plant species and is unique within the North American continent per the John Kartesz group and as published by the USDA PLANTS database. genus(16) - The taxon of plant genus as published by John Kartesz and the USDA PLANTS database. The genus, species, and variety or subspecies combined create a trinomial which is the scientific name of a plant. species(20) - The specific epithet of a plant.  This, with the genus and variety or subspecies, comprises the scientific name of a plant. author(?) - The published authority of the trinomial name as represented by John Kartesz and the USDA PLANTS database. variety_subspecies(20) - The subspecific taxa, including varieties and subspecies. They are represented thus: Subspecies: subsp._ambiguus Variety: var._scopulorum Affinity: aff._griseaKfamily(5) - The John Kartesz six character family abbreviation. Included for compatibility. Unnecessary in most applications. common_name(26) - The common or vernacular name for a plant species. These are the names as published by John Kartesz and the USDA Plants database *Missing data are represented by a "na".
