False Lettuce
Lactuca floridana (L.) Gaertn.

Threats [-]
One population is near a path and may be threatened by improper path management or direct trampling.

Conservation Strategies and Management Practices [-]
Plant should be monitored occasionally to see if they are being directly affected by park visitation.

Research Needs [-]
Herbarium work is needed to determine if all specimens are correctly identified. Propagation work should be done to see if the present population could be augmented. We would also like to know what limits its growth in New York.
