Black Holes, White Gold: A Floristic Inventory of the Silver Peak Range, Esmeralda County, NV.

March 23, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

With Peri Lee Pipkin, Masters student, Claremont University & 2022 WMRC Mini Grant Recipient

Peri Lee is conducting a floristic inventory of the Silver Peak mountains in Esmeralda County, Nevada. These desert mountains are arid yet full of incredible biodiversity, and range from valleys of alkali wetlands, cactus flats to red rock canyons, and peaks bearing lupines and bristlecone pines. There are several species of interest in the area, including the endemic and endangered Tiehm’s buckwheat, and the rare plant Tecopa Bird’s Beak. In addition to this floristic inventory, Peri Lee is also writing a conservation plan in order to preserve the threatened population of Tecopa’s Bird’s Beak that occurs in the alkali wetlands.
