CBI botanist, Jessie Vinje, continues her rare plant work and was mentioned recently in the June edition of the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge Complex Highlights. This year, the endangered salt marsh bird’s beak (Chloropyron maritimum) might be making a comeback. With California’s substantial rains in the last year, the salt marsh bird’s beak experienced something of a purple and white “superbloom”. We won’t have specific information on how this year compares with other years for C. maritimum until data analysis is complete, but it looks like it’s been a promising year for the species.

This year’s rare plant work is part of a larger project that CBI and AECOM coordinate on. The work involves implementation of a regional rare plant monitoring protocol to determine the current status for 27 highly restricted, rare plant species around the San Diego County region.
