We see that there are 3 specimen records which indicate that the plant was collected in Ponderosa Pine forest at about 4,000 feet elevation. In the main screen we could also see that there is a parks list available for this species so lets check that out as well.
Here we see the full list of all parks known to have scarlet skyrocket. Photographs show us the setting for each park to help us visualize the general ecological setting. For each park, we see that there is biological data about how skyrocket occurs in the park, whether common or rare, whether widespread or endemic. This tells us that it is rare in some parks, common in others. It's distribution is as a widespread native in a few parks but for most of them this is unknown.
If we know our parks we could tell that most of these are western parks, but a map would be a lot more helpful in seeing if there are any important patterns for these particular parks that might help us, given that our specimens were flowers of mid-elevation ponderosa pine forests, and our flora tells us that this is a species of transition zone open woods.
Here we can see our parks with skyrocket in yellow, and we can see these are parks of the Sierras, Rockies, and Colorado Plateau which is consistent with Ponderosa Pine forest. What we really want to do, though, is see these parks against a backdrop of biomes to see what kinds of ecological regions they represent.
Here we can see our parks occurring in the California biome to the west, the Great Basin and Rocky Mountain biomes to the north, and reaching into the Mexican biome to the south. To find out more about what is going on with this species at its northern limits lets zoom in to the Yellowstone area.
Here we can see that our 2 northernmost parks for skyrocket, Yellowstone and Craters of the Moon, represent different biome types, with the former mainly Cascade-Rockies and the latter within the drier Great Basin biome. Grand Teton park lies between the two, but why the species is not recorded there may simply be lack of data.
