Alice Eastwood, a famous California botanist, conducted a botanical survey in 1900 of Canyon Creek and listed all the trees and shrubs she found along her journey. This chapter describes the expedition that challenged the published list of Miss Eastwood. The goal of this expedition was to find all her shrubs and trees and to add a few more onto the list. It sought to show that at a landscape scale, species composition can stay remarkably stable, even over the course of a century.
