Environmental Review Request Form

Information compiled on species and vegetation communities comes from a wide range of sources including publications, museum and herbarium collections, fieldwork, and coordination with many partner scientists who share information on the status of the plants and animals that occur in the state.

Species and vegetation community information is updated and improved as new data are obtained.

This information is used by research scientists, conservation organizations, consulting firms and agencies to plan for the conservation of habitat for rare species and vegetation communities.
