General Description: General description of the taxon. The description may provide information on the identification of adults, immatures, eggs, larvae, and pupae, and obvious differences, if any, in size or coloration of the sexes. In addition, citations (Author, year) for the best available reference(s) for the identification of the taxon and the reference(s) for a published illustration and/or photograph may also be included.

Genus Size: The range that includes the best estimate of the number of species in the genus that contains the element Values include: A = monotypic genus, B = very small genus (2-5 species), C = small genus (6-20 species), D = Medium to large genus (21+ species).

Genus: Taxonomic Genus

GIS: Geographic Information System.

Global Inventory Needs: Data provided through comprehensive reports for plant species. – The inventory work that needs to be done in order to better determine the NatureServe Conservation Status Rank for the element.
Global Range: See Range Extent Comments.

Global Rank (NatureServe Global Conservation Status Rank): See Global Status.

Global Status: The Global Conservation Status Rank, developed by NatureServe and the Natural Heritage Network, of a species or ecosystem from a rangewide perspective, characterizing the relative rarity or imperilment of the element. For more information see NatureServe Conservation Status.

Global Status Last Changed: Date the Global Conservation Status Rank, developed by NatureServe and the Natural Heritage Network, was assigned or revised. For more information see NatureServe Conservation Status.

Global Status Last Reviewed: Date the Global Conservation Status Rank, developed by NatureServe and the Natural Heritage Network, was assigned, revised, and/or reaffirmed. For more information see NatureServe Conservation Status.

Global Status Reasons: Summary of factors justifying the Global Conservation Status Rank. For more information see NatureServe Conservation Status.

GNA: NatureServe Global Conservation Status Rank, Not Applicable (Species)See NatureServe Conservation Status.

Good Viability: Description of what qualifies as an occurrence with good viability, taking into consideration all available knowledge, both historical and current, of the species at a particular location.

Granivore: Taxa that eat seeds or hard fruits (e.g., acorns and various nuts), although not only indirectly (e.g., only as a component of a soft fruit).

Grassland/Herbaceous: See Classification of Ecological Communities.

Group Name: If applicable, the name of the group to which the species belongs when group rather than individual criteria are used for the species.

Group: See Classification of Ecological Communities.
