Default Help with plant and wildflower ID?

I have been studying and photographing plants and wildflowers of the South Bay. Several photos don't seem to match anything in Peterson and need ID's. I have posted them on a PBase site at:

http://www.pbase.com/inaturalist/unidentified

I know that a number of these are exotics, but I still wish to identify them. I would appreciate the benefit of your experience and expertise. All ideas and comments welcome!

Thanks very much,
SBBirdo

PS: While there you are welcome to take a look at my other natural history shots.

#3984 (the unidentified plant with no flowers) is one of the lamb's quarters in the chenopodiacea family. it could be chenopodium alba (old name) for common lambsquarters, or it looks a bit more like winter lambsquarters-botanical name of that i don't know off-hand. It is a non-native weed that is very good tasting as salad greens and healthful. best picked young and tender.

Question More ID help needed...

Thanks to Doreen, John, Dan and others for the ID help. I have labeled several species as a result and will be moving them to my Wildflowers and Plants galleries.

I have put up four more yellow composites from Oka Ponds, and also two new wildflowers from Picchetti Ranch area of Monte Bello Open Space Preserve. I would appreciate your help identifying these as well. They are at:

Thanks very much.
