Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 22 Nov 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Fred Barrie (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Author), in a 16 Nov 2004 e-mail, referring to Valeriana dioica, states: "I have seen several California specimens annotated with this name, all incorrectly. I would be surprised if it occurred as far south as California."
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Abigail J. Moore see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 does not address Valeriana dioica L., consistent with the position of Barrie [who was thought to be the author of the genus for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] at the time] in Correspondence 1 that the taxon does not occur in CA.
