    Description

    Monterey pine (Pinus radiata) is a well known and much loved rare endemic of California and Raja California. Over the past two million years, its distribution has fluctuated regularly in response to climate change, Today, the species is contained in five small disjunct native populations: at Point Año Nuevo, the Monterey Peninsula, and Cambria in central California, and two Mexican islands, Gedros and Guadalupe. Monterey pine has been the focus of increasingly urgent conservation concern (Fremontia, 1997, vol. 25 no. 2), with the populations facing various onslaughts of human cause.
