The Botanical Assessment Working Group (BAWG) recently reassessed the ranks of two species: Running Serviceberry (Amelanchier humilis) and Low Milk-vetch (Astragalus lotiflorus). Of note, Astragalus lotiflorus has been removed from the tracking list following this reassessment. A summary of the changes made to these species can be found in the table below.
Please note that every effort has been made to ensure that the summary list below is accurate; however, the lists provided on our lists page are the final authority for this type of information. For the convenience of our users, we have added the rank reassessment and rank change dates into the excel files of our species lists. This will allow users to sort the data and view the most recently assessed taxa.
