NatureServe Natural Heritage Program
|Published on||17 Jan 2014|
Natural heritage programs are the leading source of information on the precise locations and conditions of at-risk species and threatened ecosystems. Consistent standards for collecting and managing data allow information from different programs to be shared and combined regionally, nationally, and internationally. The staff from across the network are experts in their fields, and include some of the most knowledgeable field biologists and conservation planners in their regions.
