WING, Charles B.


“FUR SEAL TRIP. In the last week of June of 1897 Professor Rufus L. Green, Charles B. Wing, and Wilbur W. Thoburn, of Stanford University, visited Guadalupe Island as part of a fur seal survey. Landing at the south anchorage, the west anchorage, and the northeast anchorage, despite the late season they collected 37 species of plants (DS), reported by Dudley (1899). To the known flora they added Frankenia salina, Phyllospadix torreyi, and an endemic cistanthe described as Talinum guadalupense. ” [Moran, Reid The Flora of Guadalupe Island, Mexico (1996)]
