were conducted in 2004 and 2005 to document the presence of federally-listed
and state-listed plant species of special concern in Gettysburg National
Military Park and Eisenhower National Historic Site. The surveys attempted
to confirm the presence of species of special concern that had been
documented in previous years as well as to discover the presence of
species of special concern that had not been previously documented.
Ten state-listed species of special concern puttyroot (Aplectrum hyemale), brown sedge (Carex buxbaumii), Shorts sedge (Carex shortiana), rigid sedge (Carex tetanica), hoary puccoon (Lithospermum canescens), downy phlox (Phlox pilosa), lions-foot (Prenanthes serpentaria), Shumards oak (Quercus shumardii), low spearwort (Ranunculus pusillus), and eastern coneflower (Rudbeckia fulgida) were documented for the first time in Gettysburg National Military Park and Eisenhower National Historic Site during the field surveys in 2004 and 2005.
