Subnational Rarity Rank (S-rank) updates: AC CDC has reviewed S-ranks for approximately 12,000 Maritimes taxa. Thousands of taxa have been assessed and ranked for the first time, and thousands of previously-ranked taxa have been assigned new provincial S-ranks based on documented changes in our understanding of frequency, abundance or level of threat. You can access the new ranks on our Conservation Ranks page. Additional information on S-ranks can be found here

An upcoming database release will incorporate many thousand additional records and hundreds of additional SRANK changes. Rank changes will be reflected on our Conservation Ranks page.

Updates to 100 km species lists (Data Report Section 5.0). When the 100 km search radius includes areas in adjacent provinces, only species that are rare or protected in the province of the request are returned from those areas. All ranks in this table correspond to the province in which the study site falls, even for out-of-province records.

Location Sensitive Species (Section 4.3). Our responses on New Brunswick and Nova Scotia data requests have changed following consultation with the Department of Natural Resources in each province. Our standard data request responses will now include precise location information for all species except those listed in the "Location Sensitive Species" section of the Data Report (Section 4.3), and will involve a GIS search of a 5 km radius around the survey site. A broader search radius is still possible, but would involve a special request. Feel free to contact us with any questions about this change in procedure.
