Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 12 Aug 2003 e-mail from Dan Post see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that in Flora North America: Carex norvegica (the Jepson Manual species) is not indicated for CA; that according to Flora North America author David F. Murray it is "an amphi-Atlantic species."; and that Carex norvegica subsp. inferalpina is treated as a synonym of Carex media R. Brown ex Richardson in J. Franklin et. al., Narr. Journey Polar Sea, 750. 1823, which also is not indicated for CA.
Correspondence 2 15 Feb 2008 e-mail from Margriet Wetherwax, including forwarded e-mail from Joy Mastrogiuseppe, author of genus for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] and The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that, according to Joy Mastrogiuseppe, author of genus for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] and The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2], Dave Murray determined that high resolution scans of the White Mountain specimens [i.e., all 3 records in the Consortium of California Herbaria database] indicated that they belonged instead to Carex albonigra, and that Carex norvegica Retz. therefore is to be treated as a taxon that does not occur in CA.
Correspondence 3 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Peter Zika, Andrew Hipp, & Joy Mastrogiuseppe see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Carex norvegica Retz. is to be treated as a name that in California has been misapplied to plants that belong instead to Carex stevenii (T. Holm) Kalela.
