Collecting and Propagating Native California Taxads: A case study of Pacific yew (Taxus brevifolia) and California nutmeg (Torreya californica)

Vegetative propagation of Pacific yew (Taxus brevifolia) has been reported from studies in Northern California (Doede et al. 1993) and the Pacific Northwest (Mitchell 1997; Vance 1998), however, no comparable studies exist for taxads at the southern limit of their range. In a previous note we called attention to the status of Pacific yew populations at their lower geographic range limit (Scher 1993). This reflects a concern about the survival of genotypes that occur in small, isolated, declining populations at or near their southern range boundary.
