Rare Vascular Plants of Alberta

Ecological niche models for 214 rare vascular plant species in Alberta, present-day and 2050 and 2080 projections.

NatureServe sub-national (S) and global (G) rankings are also provided (1 = critically imperiled, 2 = imperiled, 3 = vulnerable, 4 = apparently secure, 5 = secure). N indicates number of observations (populations) that are known in the province and thus the model construction sample size. Species maps are organized into collections by family.

 

Sample map: Present-day habitat suitability map for the Broad-Leaved Arrowhead (Sagittaria latifolia).

 

These maps are made available for public and academic use. For more information, please contact scottn@ualberta.ca (Dr. Scott Nielsen) or stolar@ualberta.ca (Jessica Stolar). We'd also love to hear if you have found these maps useful.
