COSEWIC assessment results by Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Committee assesses the national status of wild species, subspecies, varieties, or other designatable units of native plant & animal species that are considered to be at risk in Canada. This publication presents results of the Committee's assessments in tables, organized by status category (extinct, extirpated, endangered, threatened, special concern, not at risk, data deficient) and then by taxonomic group. For each species, information provided includes common & scientific name, population name, range of occurrence, and most recent date of assessment. This is followed by a short history of status assessments for each species that has been re-assessed. The final section contains a record of species name changes
COSEWIC assessment and status report on the black-foam lichen, Anzia colpodes, in Canada( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Canada, this lichen is at the northern edge of its range, and is known from Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. It appears to be extirpated from Ontario and Quebec and has not been seen in New Brunswick for about a decade. It occurs on sites dominated by mature deciduous trees with high humidity and moderate light. In Nova Scotia, this lichen is widespread but not common. The reasons for its decline are not clear. The main current threat is deforestation. Additional threats may include grazing by molluscs and climate change"--Page ix
COSEWIC assessment and status report on the Louisiana waterthrush, Parkesia motacilla, in Canada( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since this species was last assessed by COSEWIC in 2006, new information on the distribution and abundance is available as a result of targeted surveys in southwestern Quebec and southern Ontario, as well as the completion of 5 years of fieldwork for the second Québec Breeding Bird Atlas. In addition, information on nesting productivity and parasitism rates in Canada is available as a result of nest monitoring efforts in southwestern Ontario. Some information on site fidelity, site turnover, and return rates in Ontario is also available as a result of a 4-year colour-banding project. New and emerging threats on the breeding grounds are impacting breeding habitat in the northern United States range, which is considered an essential source of immigrants to sustain the small Canadian population. New forest pest species are also expected to affect forest habitat in the Canadian breeding range in the near future. Other threats to the population in southern Ontario are continuing"--Preface (p. x)
COSEWIC assessment and status report on the Lake Erie watersnake, Nerodia sipedon insularum, in Canada( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most important occurrence since the previous COSEWIC status report on Lake Erie Watersnake is the removal of the species from the U.S. list of federally endangered and threatened species on August 16, 2011 (USFWS 2010). The delisting of Lake Erie Watersnake in the U.S. is primarily the result of increasing numbers of individuals on the U.S. islands. There are no recent comparable data for the Canadian population"--Preface, p. x
COSEWIC assessment and status report on the gray fox, Urocyon cinereoargenteus, in Canada( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the publication of the 2002 COSEWIC status report, a second sub-population containing breeding animals has established, as well as increased presence of Gray Fox in Quebec and New Brunswick. Gray Fox in Manitoba continue to be present though breeding has not been established. Individual animals recorded in New Brunswick, Quebec, and Manitoba are considered to be individuals that have recently dispersed from adjacent populations in the United States. Because of the absence of breeding evidence, animals in New Brunswick, Quebec, and Manitoba are not considered relevant to status. As part of COSEWIC status assessments, Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge (ATK) reports are prepared by the Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge subcommittee (ATK SC). These initial reports compile and summarize ATK relevant to status assessment when ATK information is available and readily accessible. A Gathering Report may be undertaken if there are significant knowledge gaps, or if major contradictions exist between ATK and other forms of knowledge. The ATK SC has not identified ATK specific to the Gray Fox in Canada"--Preface (p. xi)
COSEWIC assessment and status report on the flooded jellyskin, Leptogium rivulare, in Canada( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 2004 COSEWIC assessment of the Flooded Jellyskin, significant search effort has improved our knowledge of its distribution and abundance in central and eastern Ontario, and surveys have expanded its known range into southwestern Quebec, northern Ontario, and southeastern Manitoba. Furthermore, its known range in southern Ontario has been extended west to southern Grey and Bruce Counties, and north to Algonquin Provincial Park. The occurrence from a historical site at Temagami was also confirmed"--Preface, p. xi
COSEWIC assessment and status report on the Peary caribou, Rangifer tarandus pearyi, in Canada( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report incorporates information that became available after the last COSEWIC Status Update (COSEWIC 2004) for Peary Caribou Rangifer tarandus pearyi. Since the last assessment, surveys have been conducted in all four Peary Caribou subpopulation ranges to provide updated information on abundance and trends. Other significant contributions to this update include: an assessment of the conservation status of Peary Caribou (SARC 2012), including Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge, undertaken by the Government of Northwest Territories; and updates from traditional ecological knowledge on caribou collected and summarized from Aboriginal sources by the COSEWIC Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge (ATK) Subcommittee. In 2011, Peary Caribou was listed under SARA as Endangered, following the results of the last COSEWIC assessment in 2004. Environment Canada is in the process of developing a recovery strategy for Peary Caribou (Environment Canada, in prep.). This report has benefited from ATK (including Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit [IQ; Inuit traditional knowledge]), compilation of population data, various maps, and additional scientific information gathered through this process"--Preface (p. xi)
COSEWIC assessment and status report on the common hoptree, Ptelea trifoliata, in Canada( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the last status report in 2002, the number of mature Common Hoptrees in Canada appears to have increased. Subpopulation size at nine sites is increasing, three small sites were extirpated due to development and 11 previously undocumented sites were recorded. Several large occurrences of Common Hoptree have been thoroughly surveyed, leading to a substantial increase in the number of documented Common Hoptrees in Canada. More than 12,000 mature individuals are known to occur in Canada, which is an increase from the estimate of 920 to 1025 given in the 2002 report. Over 90% of the mature individuals occur at Point Pelee National Park"--Preface, p. x
