    Description

    A search for vascular plants was conducted on six of the highest ridges in the south Coast Ranges of California. It covered five prominent peaks in the Santa Lucia Range, Monterey County, and the tallest mountain in the Diablo Range, San Benito-Fresno counties. Listed are all species found above 1200 m (3937-feet) elevation on at least one peak. Relative abundance is estimated for three elevation zones on all peaks. Notes provide information about each species' life form, plant community preference, ecological characteristics, and taxonomic problems.
