Lily Spring Area Survey:
Publications of Wayne Sawyer

As explained on our overview page, the Lily Spring Area Survey (LSAS) repeated a phenology study carried out 30 years earlier by Wayne Sawyer in the high country of the San Gabriel Mountains. Sawyer's phenology study is documented by his 1987 paper published in Crossosoma. All of the information in the Crossosoma paper, together with additional information, is included in his M.S. thesis published in 1985. (The subject of the thesis is pollination. The phenology study was part of the thesis work.)

The following downloadable files cover Sawyer's Crossosoma paper and his thesis.
