 65 FR 6952-6960 Proposed Endangered Status for the Ohlone   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Ohlone tiger beetle habitat is an open native grassland, with California oatgrass (Danthonia californica) and purple needlegrass (Stipa pulchra), on level or nearly level slopes.
The Ohlone tiger beetle is restricted to remnant patches of native grassland on coastal terraces where low and sparse vegetation provide space for foraging, reproduction, and thermoregulation, and support a prey base of other invertebrate species.
These nonnative plants are aggressive invaders that convert sunny, native grassland needed by Ohlone tiger beetles to habitat dominated by an overstory that shades the bare areas among the low or sparse native vegetation, thus covering the open sunny areas required by the Ohlone tiger beetle to thermoregulate, forage, and oviposit.

 Ohlone Medicine
Several consequences arise from living a gathering and hunting life: arthritis and rheumatism, which are a result of growing older and reflect the accumulation of wear and tear at the joints; and a suite of physical traumas (fractures, strains, sprains, bruises, and the pain and swelling associated with such traumas).
The Ohlone used a number of plants as purgatives, medicines which stimulated either emesis (expelling from the mouth) or catharsis (expelling from the rectum), or sometimes both.
Ohlone medicine proceeded from their assumptions about the nature of reality and they explained disease by reference to both the natural and supernatural worlds.

 An Overview of Ohlone Culture
Ohlone culture is seen in this ethnographic sketch as a world in which the people had a close physical and psychological bond to the environment and to the customs of a small society.
A heritage of thousands of years lay under the Ohlones' feet as most of the major villages contained deep deposits, built from the debris of daily life, that sealed the remains of the Ohlone past.
The ethnographic story of the Ohlone is occasionally rich with knowledge about a life that was so incredibly different from the civilization that now stands in its stead; while on the other hand it is an incomplete story, or only a rough outline, with gaps as yet undiscovered and untold.
