New Mexico Rare Plant Conservation Strategy

Natural Heritage New Mexico provided technical support and consultation to assist the Forestry Division of the New Mexico Energy, Minerals, and Natural Resources Department (EMNRD) in creating The New Mexico Rare Plant Conservation Strategy. The Strategy includes the best available science to identify 235 rare and endangered plant species in New Mexico, including 109 species that only occur in New Mexico and nowhere else in the world. These species are distributed among 135 Important Plant Areas (IPAs) across the state. The strategy includes recommendations that federal, state, and local agencies, private groups, academic institutions, and others can take to conserve New Mexico's rare and endangered plants.
