Abstract

Column one includes 2356 Californian vascular plant species recognized by Baldwin et al. (2017 Amer. J. Bot.), and column 2 includes their correspondence to the “large and intermediate-sized genera” studied by Stebbins & Major (1965 Ecol. Monogr.). These 2356 species represent 44.8% of the 5257 species examined by Baldwin et al. (2017) and include only the species that conform to the generic concepts of Stebbins & Major, which sometimes differ from revised generic concepts in the Jepson eFlora (2015 http://ucjeps.berkeley.edu/...).  Species described or otherwise recognized as native to California since 1965 that conform to Stebbins & Major's generic concepts (e.g., segregates of once more widely circumscribed species recognized by Stebbins & Major as part of an included genus) but were unknown or unrecognized by them are included here.  The unpublished lists of taxa in large and intermediate-sized genera studied by Stebbins & Major (1965) were obtained from the George Ledyard Stebbins Papers, made available by courtesy of Special Collections at the University of California, Davis Library.
