Correspondence 1 5 Jan 2016 e-mail from John Strother see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 includes reference to a paper by R. E. Riefner, Jr. [Phytologia (Jan 5, 2016) 98(1)], in which it is reported that Ficus microcarpa L.f., native to temperate and tropical Asia, Australasia, and parts of the Pacific, is "naturalized" in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, and Ventura counties in southern CA. [All of the specimens cited appear to have been collected within city limits, suggesting that treatment as an urban weed would be most appropriate, based on criteria adopted by the Jepson Flora Project, although it is possible that some occur under conditions that would otherwise qualify for treatment as naturalized.]
