Have you ever been so hungry that nearly everything around you reminds you of food? Well, that is exactly what happened to our crew while on top of Upper and Lower Table Rocks near Medford, Oregon this April. During our daily hikes up the steep switchbacks, throughout the long field days in the hot sun and into the cool breezes of evening, our conversation often turned to food, and even the plants around us started to look delicious. As we monitored the rare Dwarf Wooly Meadowfoam (Limnanthes pumila ssp. pumila) we created new and improved names for the most appetizing looking plants. Check out the menu of our work, and then see individual flower descriptions below. Please enjoy this 'meal' with us, bon appetit from the Conservation Research Crew!
