Its long, red tap-root will then descendlor moisture to the depth of several feet, and its leaves willkeep green when everything else that is of value as forage isdried up. The rosettes formed by its radical leaves lie closeto the ground in winter, and resist even heavy frosts without of south California its spread is sometimes arrested by thered ant, which gathers the seeds in its burrows, leaving con-spicuous piles of the awns outside, around its hills. Oxalis corniculata is locally a very persistent weed, resistingthe summers drought to an extraordinary degree ; but it is notgenerally distributed, though more common in southern thanin northern California.

injury. Both plants are regarded as marks of a rich soil ; andin such soils the task of keeping them in check is indeed aserious one, for the seeds will continue to germinate in thedriest and hottest times of midsummer, after the land is laidby; and the costly operation of hoeing alone can master itat that season. The propagation of the alfilerilla as a pastureplant is rendered difficult by the nature of the seeds, with theirlong, spirally coiled awns (styles) ; and in certain sandy soils nticola.—See page 330. The western Poison Oak, or jSumac (Rhus diversiloba),is a very persistent invader of pastures on which it formedpart of the original growth, and keeps sprouting up fromfragments of root-stocks remaining alive in the soil for years.In company with the Brake Fern (Pteris aquilina) it is usuallythe last of the native vegetation to be subdued by cultivation, bothin the Coast range and in the foot-hills of the Sierra Nevada.

This large AI-assisted collection comprises about 60,000 images of botanical drawings and illustrations. It spans from the 14th to 19th century. As of today, we estimate the total number of botanical illustrations in our archive as 200,000 and growing. The "golden age" of botanical illustration is generally considered to be the 18th and 19th centuries, a time when there was a great deal of interest in botany and a proliferation of botanical illustrations being produced. During this period, many of the great botanical illustrators of the time, such as Maria Sybilla Merian, Pierre-Joseph Redouté, and John James Audubon, were active and produced some of the most iconic and influential botanical illustrations of all time. In addition to being used for scientific purposes, botanical illustrations were also highly prized for their beauty and were often used to decorate homes and other public spaces. Many of the most famous botanical illustrations from this period are still admired and collected today for their beauty and historical significance. All large Picryl collections were made possible with the development of neural image recognition. We made our best to reduce false-positive image recognition to under 5%.
