ABSTRACT
The article discusses about the cooperative management agreement between the U.S. Air Force's Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) at Arnold Air Force Base (AFB), Tennessee, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service concerning the continued management and protection for Eggert's sunflower at Arnold AFB. It is described that this endangered flower is an impressive member of the AEDC barrens plant community. Accordingly, restoration of barrens habitat at Arnold has provided the needed open areas and barrens for this flower. The genetic research on what constitutes a functioning population of Eggert's sunflower is emphasized.
