Taxa Considered for the Rare List, but not Included
The Council used the list of taxa maintained by the New Mexico Natural Heritage Program to begin its consideration of which ones to
include on the New Mexico Rare Plant List. This initial list contained more than 600 taxa. Brief explanations for not including many of these
taxa can be seen by clicking a letter (corresponding to the first letter of a botanical name) below. Council members investigated taxa for which no easy decision was possible.
Many taxon names are linked to those reports.
