over 25 years, Dr. Jim Griffin (left) worked at Hastings on various
aspects of plants
plant ecology. Jim
wrote a flora, (or a book describing each plant) for Hastings. For each
plant, Jim wrote up a brief description and included some interesting
natural history. The Flora of Hastings is based on over 3,000 specimens
of plants preserved by Jim and kept in the Hastings herbarium.
species list of Hastings vascular plants (HTML) (or
plain text-faster download) is
available and is based on the Flora of Hastings Reservation, Carmel
Valley, California. 1995.
Griffin, James T., 3rd. Edition (Stromberg, Mark R., Berman, R.,
M. A., eds.) 90 pp. Museum of Vertebrate
Zoology, University of California Berkeley. You can download
the Flora of Hastings as a
PDF file (2 Mb) and take it to your local print shop if you want
a hard copy. We no longer sell printed copies.
Griffin co-authored a book, "Distribution
of Forest Trees in California" and we have made this book,
otherwise out of print, available on this website (click

Hornworts) as well as Excel datasets for the specimens collected at Hastings.

Chapter, California Native Plant Society
Eaten By Mammals at Hastings. 1940's. Jean Linsdale. For
most species of Hastings plants, a small section of leaf was cleared and
mounted on a microscope slide to show the cell walls and patterns of cellular
structure. These microscope slides are labeled for each species. Using
this reference collection of plant tissues, the gut contents of many small
mammals were examined and a list of plants found to be eaten by Hastings
mammals was compiled. This list was scanned in 2003 and is available as
a PDF file.
maps, color pictures, etc. of Hastings plants, go to Cal
Flora. Cal Flora was shut down in early 2003 due to budget cuts, but
it is back!You can copy the scientific name of the plant from the plant
list here into the NatureServe
search page and obtain other information on state, federal status,
images, distribution, ecology, and literature for each species.
