An article, "Intercontinental dispersal: The origin of the widespread South American plant species Gilia laciniata (Polemoniaceae) from a rare California and Oregon coastal endemic" was published in March 2000, in the journal Plant Systematics and Evolution. In this work, authors Morrell, Porter, and Friar used molecular methods to assess the relationships between Gilia millefoliata, G. valdiviensis and G. laciniata.

For their Environmental Science and Management Senior Capstone, authors Sophia Grubb, Almond Dodge, and Jeremy Cashen, did a suitable habitat assessment for three rare plants, Gilia millefoliataErysimum menziesii, and Layia carnosa, on the Barr Parcel of the Friends of the Dunes Property. They found all three plants were located on the parcel and recommend the removal of competing invasive plants, as well as increased signage to protect these vulnerable species.
