  • Title: Ecology | Alaska Natural Heritage Program
    Descriptive info: The primary objective of the Ecology Program is to describe the plant communities and ecological systems within the State of Alaska.. Plant communities (or plant associations) are assemblages of species that respond similarly to environmental conditions such as climate, soil, topography, geology, and hydrology.. Ecosystems (or ecological systems) represent recurring groups of biological communities that are found in similar physical environments and are influenced by similar dynamic ecological processes, such as  ...   rarity.. of.. plant associations.. and.. ecological systems.. occurring in Alaska.. Ecological systems have been described for Alaska in support of the.. National Vegetation Classification.. , which when completed will provide a hierarchal standard for the United States.. Plant associations documented as occurring in Alaska have been assessed with respect to conservation status and compiled in a publically-available database for use in land management and conservation applications.. Forest.. Herbaceous.. Shrub.. Projects.. LANDFIRE..

  • Title: Botany Species Information | Alaska Natural Heritage Program
    Descriptive info: November 25, 2010.. The botany program develops (in consultation with other arctic and Alaska flora experts), maintains, and updates a list of vascular plant species and lichens that are rare in Alaska.. We assign these species conservation status ranks that adhere to protocols developed by our parent organization, NatureServe.. More information on Alaska s rare vascular plants and lichens can be accessed.. In addition, the botany program has compiled biographies for over half of the 350 non-native plant species that are known or  ...   state, has developed an invasive plant ranking system that helps evaluate the potential invasiveness and impacts of non-native plants to natural areas in Alaska (Carlson.. et al.. 2008).. With funding support from the US Forest Service, the Alaska Association of Conservation Districts and the University of Alaska we have ranked approximately 170 non-native plant species to date.. More information on Alaska s non-native plants can be accessed.. Map Plant Distributions.. Request Data.. Rare Plants.. Non-Native Plants.. Explore Data.. Submit Data..
