NatureServe Status

Global Status: G1
Global Status Last Reviewed: 27Jun2018
Global Status Last Changed: 13Apr1984
Ranking Methodology Used: Ranked by calculator
Rounded Global Status: G1 - Critically Imperiled
Reasons: Florida Natural Areas Inventory currently contains 14 extant occurrence records in its database, of which 11 are on public property. The occurrences are scattered along the eastern coast from Palm Beach County to Dade County, Florida. Beach front is under tremendous development pressure and little habitat remains. Much of the remaining habitat that this species inhabits is overgrown due to fire suppression and is becoming overrun with exotic plant species.
Nation: United States
National Status: N1

U.S. & Canada State/Province Status

NatureServe Global Conservation Status Factors

Range Extent Comments: Jacquemontia reclinata is endemic to Palm Beach, Broward, and Dade Counties, Florida. The historic occurrence from Martin County, Florida was deleted by FNAI 2018 because the identification was questionable and a specimen from Martin County of this species is no longer located in the UF herbarium.

Area of Occupancy: 6-25 4-km2 grid cells
Area of Occupancy Comments:  

Number of Occurrences: 6 - 20
Number of Occurrences Comments: There are 22 occurrences as of 2018, 14 are extant, seven are ranked X, X?, or H (NatureServe Network Database as of June 2018). Not all of the reintroduction projects initiated have been entered as element occurrences (e.g., Seawatch).

Population Size Comments: Never abundant. 679 in wild populations and 1222 in introduced populations, total of 1901 individuals (reported by Fairchild Tropical Garden in 2015; ).

Number of Occurrences with Good Viability/Integrity: None to very few (0-3)
Viability/Integrity Comments: Most of the occurrences have been extirpated or are experiencing population declines.

Overall Threat Impact: Very high
Overall Threat Impact Comments: All remaining populations are threatened by a combination of fire suppression, woody species succession, invasive exotic plant species, habitat fragmentation, and global sea level rise. Very little natural habitat remains on the SE Florida coast. Most populations are small and surrounded by urban development. Several occurrences located in disturbed openings within maritime hammock and coastal strand communities have been extirpated or are declining due to woody species succession and invasive exotic plant encroachment.

Short-term Trend: Decline of >50%
Short-term Trend Comments: Out of 12 wild populations tracked by Fairchild Tropical Garden between 2001 and 2014, four populations have been extirpated; there has been a 30% decrease in the total number of individuals with most populations decreasing by more than 80%.

Long-term Trend: Decline of >80%
Long-term Trend Comments: Fairchild Tropical Garden has introduced at least nine populations with a total of 1226 individuals reported in 2014. The long-term viability of these occurrences is largely unknown.

Intrinsic Vulnerability Comments: Species has low dispersal capability and unlikely to become reestablished through natural recolonization The preferred habitats are vulnerable to the effects of global sea level rise.

Environmental Specificity: Very narrow. Specialist or community with key requirements scarce.
Environmental Specificity Comments: Restricted to a narrow strip of coastal habitat that has been largely developed and degraded. Requires natural or anthropogenic disturbance to maintain openings in coastal strand, maritime hammock and the leeward side of coastal dunes.
