Article abstract: The Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) and AECOM Technical Services, Inc. (AECOM) worked with the San Diego Management and Monitoring Program (SDMMP) and other regional partners to prepare a Framework Rare Plant Management Plan (F-RPMP) for Management Strategic Plan (MSP) rare plants in the Management Strategic Planning Area (MSPA) in San Diego County, California. The Rare Plant Management Group Steering Committee guided development of the plan, while species Working Groups provided technical expertise (Appendix A). The plan was funded by the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG). The F-RPMP is a living document that will be updated over time. The F-RPMP provides the framework to manage MSP rare plants on conserved lands in western San Diego County. This document does not replace existing NCCP obligations or requirements, and recommendations in the plan are advisory and meant to be implemented voluntarily if land owners and managers so desire. Plan recommendations are consistent with the intent of regional NCCP plans. The F-RPMP aligns directly with goals, objectives, and actions in the regional Management and Monitoring Strategic Plan for Conserved Lands in Western San Diego County: A Strategic Habitat Conservation Roadmap (MSP Roadmap), and is informed by regional and preserve-specific monitoring data and studies.
