Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 13 Mar 2003 e-mail from Margriet Wetherwax see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Zizania palustris L. var. interior (Fassett) Dore in fact was published, in Publications, Department of Agriculture, Canada 1393: 20. 1969, and that it was cited incorrectly in International Plant Names Index; also that Zizania palustris subsp. interior (Fassett) S. L. Chen was published, in Proceedings of the International Symposium on Botanical Gardens 600. 1990.
Correspondence 2 21 Mar 2005 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that designation in Kartesz & Meacham of Zizania palustris var. interior as native is in reference to populations in at least some states in the east where it is in fact native; that there is no reference to this taxon occurring in California in Munz, Hitchcock, or Jepson's Manual of the Flowering Plants of California; and that the Kartesz & Meacham source for the California occurrence is The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], in which it is indicated [in the main text and in Appendix III] to be naturalized [in CA].
