The endangered Coyote Ceanothus (Ceanothus ferrisiae; CEFE), a serpentine chaparral endemic, is known from only three populations in Santa Clara County, CA, USA. In order to mitigate impacts to the largest population of Coyote Ceanothus from a planned seismic retrofit of Anderson Dam, a new population must be created proactively. A potential mitigation site has been selected on Coyote Ridge, north of the reservoir, which is host to serpentine soils and associated rare species. A series of collaborative research studies on the genetics, soil relationships, and water availability needs of known populations of Coyote Ceanothus were conducted to determine site feasibility and methods to create a successful, functioning population.
