HAYS DAILY NEWS' I'AOK 7 December 12, 1976 10% Of Flowers On Endangered List CHICAGO (UPI) - What's happening to our flowers? No one is certain how many species of flowering plants exist in the United States, but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimates the number .at 20,000, with about 10 per •cent believed to qualify for •endangered status. One reason for the floral .'uncertainty is that, until .recently, growth patterns of •various species had not been •collected on a scientific basis. • Now, researchers are using ."computers to help them study .growth patterns and identify ; endangered species. • Theodore Crovello, chair: man of the University of Nptre • Dame's biology department, heads a model research effort I which includes the study of 100 , species of the 3,500-species •mustard plant family. With • contributions from 75 institutions, including the University .'of California at Berkeley, . Harvard University and the • Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, the researchers have collected and logged 45,000 specimens of the various species. ' Crovello says the computer stores the date and place each .specimen was collected, : providing a printout through : which growth patterns may be • measured and projected. "Without the computer data .'bank," he said in a telephone 'interview, "the fellow who's I try ing to determine which .-species are endangered has nothing to go on." • Crovello notes that the lack ". of scientific studies in the past ; makes interpretation of the ;data tricky. If a flower were -popular in 1850 but in" frequently collected (framed "or otherwise saved like : stamps) in 1900, data derived ;from collections might'make •it appear the flower was • becoming extinct. Similarly, a plant which . actually is endangered, but ; whose popularity among collectors increases, might appear to be increasingly plentiful — if the number of specimens is to be believed. The project at Notre Dame, begun under a National Science Foundation grant, is similar to a study being conducted by the Native Plant Society of California. Biology professor Wayne Savage of San Jose State University says members of the group have been cog ;cting data for the past 18 years. California has about 6,000 Of the nation's 20,000 plant species, and Savage says about 1,000 of those are believed to be rare or endangered. Determining status is difficult, he says, because. California's flora have not been studied as completely or over as long a period as those other states. But Savage said it appears "many are on the way out, because agriculture and housing have invaded areas with native plants." Crovello says he hopes a national computer data bank on flowering and other complex plants will be created, as is now being considered in a National Park Service study. He says out the disappearance of a plant species is more than an aesthetic loss. Many chemicals now used in medicines were discoverbd in plants.
