Ecological integrity assessment (EIA) provides valuable information for documenting wetland conditions, and ecologically-based monitoring. The goal is to provide a succinct assessment of the composition, structure, processes, and connectivity of a wetland occurrence.
The first comprehensive conservation status assessment focusing exclusively on the 45 species occurring in North America
north of Mexico. Although most North American bats have large range sizes and large populations, as of 2015,
18–31% of the species were at risk (categorized as having vulnerable, imperiled, or critically imperiled
NatureServe conservation statuses) and therefore among the most imperiled terrestrial vertebrates on the continent.
Over the past year and a half, the NatureServe Network has accomplished amazing things. From rediscovering precious lost species, engaging citizen scientists, and shining a spotlight on the flora and fauna most in need, our expertise and “boots on the ground” data-gathering have a global impact because of the power of our Network.
This report provides an update to our 2005 analysis of the conservation status of Canadian plants and animals in a global context, finding that 6.3 percent — 333 species and subspecies — are of global conservation concern. The assessment draws mostly on data from NatureServe and the network of Canadian conservation data centres.
