NatureServe Status

Global Status: G1G2
Global Status Last Reviewed: 11Apr2013
Global Status Last Changed: 11Apr2013
Ranking Methodology Used: Ranked by calculator
Rounded Global Status: G1 - Critically Imperiled
Reasons: A narrow endemic of the Spring Mountains in Clark County, Nevada. Known from about 22 locations. Threatened by loss of occurrences due to development and alteration of its spring and riparian habitat including: recreational use of riparian areas, competition from exotic species, wild horse and burro trampling, and spring diversions.
Nation: United States
National Status: N1N2

U.S. & Canada State/Province Status

NatureServe Global Conservation Status Factors

Range Extent Comments: Spring Mountains, Clark county, Nevada.

Area of Occupancy: 1 4-km2 grid cells
Area of Occupancy Comments: Area of occupancy was calculated based on Morefiled (2001) which indicates that the total estimated area for the species is approximately 137 acres, or approximately 0.55 km2.

Number of Occurrences: 21 - 80

Population Size Comments: Approximately 3,781 individuals estimated in 2001 (Morefield).

Overall Threat Impact: Very high - medium
Overall Threat Impact Comments: An 'Adaptive Management Report for Clark County, Nevada, Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP)' was written in 2008 for all of Clark County, Nevada in response to an Incidental Take Permit held by Clark County, Nevada Department of Transportation and several cities. The Incidental Take Permit allows up to 145,000 acres of habita loss to take place over 30 years beginning in January 2001 (Sada et al. 2008). Angelica scabrida is endemic to Clark County, Nevada and is considered in the MSHCP. It is estimated that approximately 9% of the considered sites of A. scabrida in the Plan will be lost due to direct human impacts from the Permit (Sada et al. 2008). Other threats exist in addition to loss of occurrences via the Incidental Take Permit, and these include water diversion from the riparian and spring habitats where it occurs, recreation and damage from non-native species, including but not limited to cattle (Sada et al. 2008, Morefield 2001).

Short-term Trend: Unknown
Short-term Trend Comments: No information on trend was found as of 2013.

Environmental Specificity: Very narrow. Specialist or community with key requirements scarce.
Environmental Specificity Comments: Occurs only in riparian places or springs (Sada et al. 2008, Morefield 2001).
