Additional population comments: 29 subpopulations of Crepis bakeri spp. idahoensis have been documented at the Garden Creek Ranch between 1991 and 1999. Three of these were documented in 1991 by M. Mancuso [EO 14] (Mancuso and Moseley 1994). The remaining 26 subpopulations were documented by TNC personnel in annual surveys between 1994 and 1999 (Hill and Gray 1999). The Hill and Gray (1999) study divided the 14,000-acre Ranch into 4 Study Areas (Upper Corral Creek, Lower Corral Creek, China Garden Creek, Cave Gulch). During this study, compasses, altimeters and topographic maps were used to map the locations; individual locational points were referred to as ‘GIS #s’. Subpopulations incorporated either an individual GIS# or a group of GIS#s in close proximity, usually on the same general aspect. In early 2019, using a program called ‘Earth Point Topo Map’, the hard-copy topographic locations were converted to digital files on Google Earth (GE) Pro. This rare plant observation form summarizes information about the 26 subpopulations documented during the Hill and Gray (1999) surveys; it also includes both the original topographic map locations and the digital GE locations of all 29 subpopulations that were documented at the Garden Creek Ranch between 1991 and 1999.
