Rare Plant Conservation

About half of the species listed as Endangered, Threatened and Special Concern in Massachusetts are plants.

We are responsible for tracking the locations, viability, and supporting habitats of plant species on the MESA List, our Plant Historic List , and our Plant Watch List . Inventory and monitoring are critical to our understanding of the rarity and degree of threat of each rare plant, and informs our priorities for species conservation work.
