    This report summarizes each of 68 ecological surveys conducted from 1975 through 1988 on candidate and established Research Natural Areas in the Pacific Southwest Region of the USDA Forest Service. These surveys represent an important but largely unknown contribution to the ecological literature of California. For each summary, information on location, target elements, distinctive features, physical characteristics, association types, plant diversity, and conflicting impacts is provided. Comparisons are made between similar vegetation types at different sites. Tables and appendices summarize the plant communities, target elements, rare plants, and trees occurring on all areas. Maps of all areas and photographs of most areas are included.
