Species Ranks

The AC CDC maintains comprehensive provincial lists of plant and animal species, with a conservation status rank (S-rank) and legal status for each species in each province (with Newfoundland and Labrador treated separately for ecological reasons). Species’ conservation status is assessed in collaboration with other experts. AC CDC maintains S-ranks for all terrestrial vertebrates, vascular plants, bryophytes (mosses and related plants), macrolichens and for many invertebrate groups. As of December 2016 our database has provincial ranks for approximately 12,000 species and subspecific taxa, with that number increasing significantly in 2015 as new groups have been assessed. Through the links below you can access full lists of species with conservation status ranks, for each Atlantic province. Lists are organized by jurisdiction and by taxonomic group.
