Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1indicates, in a note under the genus, that Spartina anglica C. E. Hubb. is "introduced to SnFrB (Creekside Park, Marin Co.)", but with no indication of its status relative to the flora of California (e.g., naturalized? waif?) beyond that. [If the pls are considered naturalized, the taxon should have been treated fully; if the pls are considered active waifs, the taxon should have been included in the key to members of the genus, with a description only online; the fact that the taxon was not treated in either way is confusing, and suggests that a Current Status of unresolved is most appropriate at this time.]
