(Some other indicator species of the biome might be considered to be: Encelia farinosa, Krameria grayi, Anderson Thornbush, Bebbia juncea, etc.) In the western Sonoran Desert this may include the Ocotillo and Saguaro; in the Colorado Desert, only the Ocotillo.

Bolded species are the Creosote bush scrub biome species-(i.e. the creosote bush: Larrea tridentata, Saguaro, Ocotillo), or the endemics, or near-endemics to the LCRV region-(endemics listed in final section).

Famous quotes containing the words list of, region, flora, list and/or southern:

    The advice of their elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841–1935)

    It was the most wild and desolate region we had camped in, where, if anywhere, one might expect to meet with befitting inhabitants, but I heard only the squeak of a nighthawk flitting over. The moon in her first quarter, in the fore part of the night, setting over the bare rocky hills garnished with tall, charred, and hollow stumps or shells of trees, served to reveal the desolation.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Lastly, his tomb
    Shall list and founder in the troughs of grass
    And none shall speak his name.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    There are many ways of discarding [books]. You can give them to friends,—or enemies,—or to associations or to poor Southern libraries. But the surest way is to lend them. Then they never come back to bother you.
    Carolyn Wells (1862?–1942)
