  • Title: About NMRP
    Descriptive info: About the New Mexico Rare Plant Technical Council.. NMRPTC Overview.. The New Mexico Rare Plant Technical Council (NMRPTC) is composed entirely of volunteer botanists who donate their time and expertise on rare plants.. The Council's primary goal is to develop an internet version of a rare plant inventory with information on the basic biology and conservation status of New Mexico's approximately 234 rare plants.. Photographs, line drawings, and distribution maps accompany the written reports.. The reports are edited to preclude inclusion of sensitive information, such as detailed location data, which might further endanger rare species.. Council members work with various private, state and Federal agencies to gather and share information on rare plants.. The Internet is used to communicate between members and web pages are set up on the Council's server at the University of New Mexico Herbarium.. The Council meets annually to review progress on web site development and discuss matters of mutual interest to the group.. Brief History of the Council.. The NMRPTC is in part a reconstruction of the former "New Mexico Native Plant Protection Advisory Committee," formed in the early 1970's in response to needs generated by the Endangered Species Act, and which produced the book "A Handbook of Rare and Endemic Plants of New Mexico (1984).. " As it became understood that there was continuing need for up-to-date information by land managers, agencies, and the general public the new Council was formed.. Some members of the earlier Committee remained active in the newly formed Council; other botanists newly trained or new to the state also joined the committee.. The need for the Council, and its development, was particularly promoted by Bob Sivinski of the New Mexico Forestry Department, and Charlie McDonald, then of the U.. S.. Fish and Wildlife Service and later of the U.. Forest Service.. 1998.. First organizational meeting- Bob Sivinski, first Chair of the Council.. Patricia Barlow-Irick, first Secretary of the Council.. Meeting at the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge (SNWR) to discuss rare plant list and assign reports.. Meeting at the SNWR to discuss website construction for field guide.. Server and slide scanner purchased with funding from the Native Plant Society of New Mexico and the State Land Office.. Council members write taxon reports.. 2000.. Selection of slides for inclusion on the website.. Ongoing request for permission to use illustrations, scanning proceeds, illustrations drawn.. Distribution maps created.. Ongoing reports written, checked by editorial team.. 2001.. Charlie McDonald, Chair of the Council.. Nancy Kastning, Co-Chair of the Council.. New website goes online.. 2002-2003.. Ongoing completion of reports, editing, photos, illustrations, and mapping for website.. 2004.. Fourth Southwestern Rare and Endangered Plant Conference.. (March 22-25, 2004) New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, New Mexico- Organized by Charlie McDonald and Patricia Barlow-Irick.. 2005.. Natural Heritage New Mexico develops database for website that improves site maintenance.. The Institute of Natural Resource Analysis and Management (INRAM) funds the project.. 2007.. The New Mexico rare plant list  ...   were determined in need of editorial updates to their existing rare plant reports.. Five taxa on the rare list were considered for dropping will be kept until additional information becomes available.. Two taxa had already been addressed prior to this meeting.. Decisions on five taxa were deferred pending publication of scientific names, further research, and/or field study.. In addition we discussed updating our ranking criteria for rare plants and consolidating ranking systems with Natural Heritage NM.. A subcommittee was formed to discuss and establish a better ranking system to help prioritizing conservation actions.. The group discussed increasing the functionality of the website and making it more user friendly for the webmaster as well as the end user.. A subcommittee was designated to discuss design elements and needed updates as well as to brainstorm the best way to accomplish this goal.. We also discussed adopting an official policy on how the NMRPTC should approach hybrids of rare plants.. A general policy of our approach will be added to the Criteria for Inclusion on the website..

Endangered.. - A species in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range.. Threatened.. - A species likely to become endangered within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range.. Candidate.. - A species for which the USFWS has sufficient information to propose that it be added to the list of endangered and threatened species, but the listing action has been precluded by other higher priority listing activities.. Species of Concern.. - A taxon for which further biological research and field study are needed to resolve their conservation status OR are considered sensitive, rare, or declining on lists maintained by Natural Heritage Programs, State wildlife agencies, other Federal agencies, or professional/academic scientific societies.. Source: Charlie McDonald, Regional Botanist, U.. Forest Service, Southwestern Region.. State of New Mexico.. - The taxon is listed as threatened or endangered under the provisions of the Federal Endangered Species Act (16 U.. C.. Sections 1531 et seq.. ), or is considered proposed under the tenets of the act [10-29-85,]; or the taxon is a rare plant across its range within the state, and of such limited distribution and population size that unregulated taking could adversely impact it and jeopardize its survival in New Mexico.. [10-29-85, 8-31-95].. - A New Mexico plant species, which should be protected from land use impacts when possible because it is a unique and limited component of the regional flora.. Sources: New Mexico Administrative Code, Title 19, Chapter 21 Part 2.. 8 (Criteria for inclusion of the endangered plant species list), and Robert Sivinski, State Botanist.. Forest Service (USFS).. - Any species designated as endangered by the U.. Fish and Wildlife Service that is known to occur on national forest lands in New Mexico.. - Any species designated as threatened by the U.. Sensitive.. - A species that is likely to occur or have habitat on National Forest Service System lands and that has been identified by the Regional Forester as of concern for reduction in population viability as evidenced by: significant current or predicted downward trends in population numbers or density, or; significant current or predicted downward trends in habitat capability that would reduce the species' distribution.. Bureau of Land Management (BLM).. Definition.. : BLM Special Status Species are those federally listed or proposed as threatened or endangered, and those designated as BLM Sensitive Species, which includes both Federal candidate species and federally delisted species within 5 years of delisting.. Designation of BLM Sensitive Species.. : State Directors shall designate species within their respective states as BLM sensitive using the following criteria.. For species inhabiting multiple states, State Directors shall coordinate with one another in the designation of BLM Sensitive Species so that species status is consistent across the species' range on BLM-administered lands for which the BLM has the capability to significantly affect the conservation of the species through management, and either:.. 1) There is information that a species has recently undergone, is undergoing, or is predicted to undergo a downward trend such that the viability of the species or a distinct population  ...   (e.. , S2S3) is used to indicate the range of uncertainty about the exact status of the element.. Ranges cannot skip more than one rank (e.. , SU is used rather than S1S4).. HYB Hybrid.. - Element not ranked because it represents an interspecific hybrid, not a species.. SE.. - An exotic established in state; may be native elsewhere in North America; includes fish native to NM but introduced into watersheds where the species is non-native.. SE# Exotic Numeric.. - An exotic established in NM that has been assigned a numeric rank to indicate its status, as defined for S1 through S5.. SA Accidental.. - Accidental or casual in NM.. In other words, infrequent and outside usual range.. Includes species (usually birds or butterflies) recorded once or only a few times at a location.. A few of these species may have bred on the one or two occasions they were recorded.. Examples include European strays or western birds on the East Coast and vice-versa.. SZ Zero Occurrences.. - Present but lacking practical conservation concern in NM because there are no definable occurrences, although the taxon is native and appears regularly in the state.. An SZ rank will generally be used for long distance migrants whose occurrences during their migrations have little or no conservation value for the migrant, as they are typically too irregular (in terms of repeated visitation to the same locations), transitory, and dispersed to be reliably identified, mapped, and protected.. In other words, the migrant regularly passes through the state, but enduring, mappable Element Occurrences cannot be defined.. SP Potential.. - Potential that element occurs in the state but no extant or historic occurrences are accepted.. SR Reported.. - Element reported in NM but without a basis for either accepting or rejecting the report, or the report not yet reviewed locally.. SRD Dubious Report.. - Element reported in NM but the report is likely to be invalid.. SRF False Report.. - Element reported in NM but the report is known to be invalid.. Global Ranks.. GX Presumed Extinct.. - Believed to be extinct throughout its range.. GH Possibly Extinct.. - Known from only historical occurrences, but may nevertheless still be extant; further searching needed.. G1 Critically Imperiled.. - Critically imperiled globally because of extreme rarity or because of some factor(s) making it especially vulnerable to extinction.. G2 Imperiled.. - Imperiled globally because of rarity or because of some factor(s) making it very vulnerable to extinction or elimination.. Typically 6 to 20 occurrences or few remaining individuals (1,000 to 3,000) or acres (2,000 to 10,000) or linear miles (10 to 50).. G3 Vulnerable.. - Vulnerable globally either because very rare and local throughout its range, found only in a restricted range (even if abundant at some locations), or because of other factors making it vulnerable to extinction or elimination.. G4 Apparently Secure.. - Uncommon but not rare (although it may be rare in parts of its range, particularly on the periphery), and usually widespread.. Apparently not vulnerable in most of its range, but possibly cause for long-term concern.. Typically more than 100 occurrences and more than 10,000 individuals.. G5 Secure.. - Common, widespread, and abundant (although it may be rare in parts of its range, particularly on the periphery).. Not vulnerable in most of its range.. Variant Global Ranks.. G#G# Range Rank.. , G2G3) is used to indicate uncertainty about the exact status of a taxon.. GU Unrankable.. GNR Unranked.. - Global rank not yet assessed.. - Element not ranked because it represents an interspecific hybrid and not a species.. Global Rank Qualifiers.. ? Inexact Numeric Rank.. - Denotes inexact numeric rank (e.. G3?).. Q Questionable taxonomy that may reduce conservation priority.. - Distinctiveness of this entity as a taxon at the current level is questionable.. Infraspecific Taxon Ranks.. T# Infraspecific Taxon (trinomial).. - The status of infraspecific taxa (subspecies or varieties) are indicated by a "T-rank" following the species' global rank.. Rules for assigning T-ranks follow the same principles outlined above.. For example, the global rank of a critically imperiled subspecies of an otherwise widespread and common species would be G5T1..

  • Title: About the Rare Plant List
    Descriptive info: About the Rare Plant List.. The primary goal of the New Mexico Rare Plant Technical Council is to develop and maintain a list of New Mexico rare plants.. Criteria for inclusion of taxa, and an explanation of the R-E-D Code are on this page.. Criteria for Inclusion.. Having a consistent and objective definition of.. rarity.. is necessary to evaluate all the species proposed as potentially rare.. Plants with narrow habitat specificity and small range are automatically of concern, whether their populations are large or not.. Other categories are less clearly rare.. A wide range and a narrow habitat are rare if the total number of populations is small.. Plants that occur only in small populations are rare if the number of those populations are limited.. Disjunct populations with numerous populations outside the state of New Mexico are cases where in a global view, the plants are not rare.. The NMRPTC will take a biological outlook and try not to read evolutionary potential into plant populations.. The NMRPTC will include sparse plants, those with large ranges but narrow habitats, and those of small ranges and narrow habitats.. Some widespread but sparse plants will be included on the basis of threats to their survival.. Hybrids.. As a general rule, the NMRPTC treats hybrid species--those that originated through hybridization but now form populations that are reproductively independent from their parents--simply as species like any other.. Ephemeral hybrids that form in contact zones between their parents and are either infertile or interbreed freely with one or both parents, on the other hand, are not considered eligible for listing as rare by the NMRPTC.. Complicated situations are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.. As an example, Opuntia viridiflora may have originated by hybridization between Opuntia imbricata and Opuntia whipplei.. Regardless of this possible hybrid origin, current populations are fertile and reproductively independent; consequently O.. viridiflora is listed as a  ...   of Rare, Threatened and Endangered Plants of California (CNPS, 1994), that we developed a system that is similar, but is slightly different for the rarity ranking.. This code presents a three element ranking that gives a great deal of information about each plant in a glance.. The three components are.. endangerment.. and.. distribution.. that together form the.. R-E-D Code.. Each element in the code is divided into three classes or degrees of concern, represented by the number 1, 2 or 3.. In each case, the higher the number, the more critical the concern.. The system is defined as follows:.. R (Rarity).. 1: rare, but found in sufficient numbers and distributed widely enough that the potential for extinction is low for the foreseeable future.. 2: occurrence confined to several populations or to one extended population.. 3: occurrence limited to one or a few highly restricted populations, or present in such small numbers that it is seldom reported.. E (Endangerment).. 1: not endangered.. 2: endangered in a portion of its range.. 3: endangered throughout its range.. D (Distribution).. 1: more or less widespread outside New Mexico.. 2: rare outside New Mexico.. 3: endemic to New Mexico.. About the Map Data.. In using this web site you may discover some differences between the reports and their distribution maps.. Location information shown on the maps was obtained from herbarium specimen records, agency databases, and the scientific literature.. Some map points may represent data entry errors or misidentified specimens in our herbaria, which highlights the need to re-examine specimens and annotate them where appropriate.. Other map points may represent range extensions that were unknown to the author of the report.. Resolving cases where reports and maps differ is an ongoing process and we will modify our web site as these differences are identified and resolved.. Please contact us if you have information that will help in this effort..

  • Title: New Mexico Rare Plant Website
    Descriptive info: History of List Changes.. You may notice that taxa once on the New Mexico Rare Plants list are no longer there or that new taxa have appeared.. This reflects changes in our combined knowledge of New Mexico's rare plants.. Taxa that no longer appear on the list, after careful consideration, were removed because they do not qualify as being rare by our definition.. A table of changes to the list appears below.. Reports for species removed from the list can be accessed through the links below and also appear in.. which can be accessed from the side bar on the left.. Taxa Added or Dropped from the Rare Plant List.. [2001].. [2003].. [2005].. [2007].. [2008].. [2010].. [2011].. [2012].. [2013].. Action.. Date.. Reason.. Lesquerella pruinosa.. Add.. 3/2/01.. Newly discovered in northwestern New Mexico and rare in Colorado.. Packera cynthioides.. (=.. Senecio cynthioides.. Drop.. 3/12/01.. Specimen annotations by Deb Trock extend range and abundance beyond our definition of rare.. Sclerocactus cloveriae ssp.. cloveriae.. 8/2/01.. Range determined to be slightly more than 100 miles and too abundant within that range to qualify as rare.. Phacelia neomexicana.. 10/1/01.. There are too many occurrences over a broad range to be considered rare even though individual populations are small and scattered.. 10/12/01.. Published in Clausen, 1975; endemic to Sierra Blanca peak.. Cuscuta fasciculata.. Known only from the type specimen.. Taxonomy needs study, but this species is in same category as several other taxa on our rare list that are known only from a single specimen.. Apacheria chiricahuensis.. 10/29/01.. This species occurs on both limestone and rhyolite in the Black Range, San Mateo, San Andres, and Animas mountains in New Mexico, and the Chiricahua and Dragoon mountains in Arizona.. This is a range of about 180 miles.. It is reported to be fairly common in suitable habitat in the San Mateo Mountains and Richard Worthington reported that it can be abundant in suitable habitat in the Animas Mountains.. The species, therefore, does not meet our criterion of being infrequent throughout its entire range if the range exceeds 100 miles.. Clematis bigelovii.. This species occurs in Sandoval, Bernalillo, Lincoln, Sierra, and Grant counties, New Mexico, and at a few sites in immediately adjacent Arizona.. This range from north-central to southwestern New Mexico is well over 100 miles.. The Flora of North America says it is locally common and several in the Council confirmed that this is true at least for the Sandia Mountains.. Iliamna grandiflora.. Distribution includes NM, CO, AZ, and UT.. Not considered rare by any other State.. Not tracked by AZ HDMS; G3?Q, S1 by CNHP and not in CO Rare Plant Field Guide; not included as an endemic or rare plant of Utah in any of the following categories: rare, watch, peripheral, infrequent, taxonomic problems, or additional data needed.. Potentilla oblanceolata.. This is a species from Mexico.. There are no specimens documenting its occurrence in New Mexico.. Our inclusion on the list was based on a citation in Rydberg (1908) of southwestern New Mexico without specific locality.. Rydberg may have misinterpreted previous information or made an incorrect extrapolation of range.. The range of this species in Mexico exceeds 100 miles.. It is best to exclude this species from our list for now.. If plants are found in New Mexico, it can be re-evaluated for rare status.. Stipa curvifolia.. This species occurs in New Mexico, Texas, Chihuahua, and Coahuila, which is well over 100 miles.. Bob Sivinski reports it as a dominant grass on some ridges on the east side of the Guadalupe Mountains.. Richard Worthington says it is equally common in the Delaware Mountains in Texas.. Proboscidea sabulosa.. 10/31/01.. Not infrequent enough within its broad range to meet our definition of rare.. Pseudocymopteris longiratiatus.. Range determined to be over 200 miles and "frequent" in the Sacramento Mts.. metcalfei.. Senecio neomexicanus.. var..
