One of the primary goals of the Northern Colorado Plateau Network (NCPN) is to develop and maintain verified and substantiated vascular plant and vertebrate species lists for each network park. The information presented in these species lists are subsets of data managed in NPSpecies, which is the National Park Service's web-based tool for documenting the occurrence and status of species in our national parks. The species lists presented here initially went through a certification process, which involved the evaluation and review of the species information by local experts well-versed in the biology, taxonomy and nomenclature of species in the network parks. The lists are continually being updated as new information is obtained.

What's the difference?

A Checklist contains only those species that are designated as "present" or "probably present" in the park.

The Full List with Details includes all the Checklist species plus species that are unconfirmed, historically detected, or incorrectly reported in the park. The Full List also contains species that are "in review" because their status in the park hasn't been fully determined. Additional details about the status of each species is included in the Full List.

The Checklist will almost always contain fewer species than the Full List.
