Species Lists

Species lists are always works in progress. The absence of a species from a list does not necessarily indicate its absence from the park, since it is possible that formal census techniques targeting rare, unique, cryptic or seasonally present species were not used.


The Southwest Environmental Information Network (SEINet) is a data gateway designed to facilitate the distribution of plant species occurrence information to the environmental research community and the public.

Originally created by Arizona State University, SEINet now includes a network of departments, museums, and agencies from the Southwest and beyond. SEINet uses the latest floristic terminology and links records from
over 1.1 million voucher specimens from herbaria throughout the Southwest. It provides species lists, interactive keys and images to aid in plant identification, and interactive distribution maps.

The core of the Species Lists inventory is NPSpecies, which is part of the IRMA information system. NPSpecies is a compilation of existing species lists and evidence records (vouchers, scientific documents, and observation records) that support the species occurrence for vertebrates and vascular plants in more than 270 parks with significant natural resources.

NPSpecies supports NPS staff and collaborators at the park, network, regional, and national levels by managing basic park-level species information, and making this information available to other applications and databases for more specialized analyses.

Species on the NPSpecies list are recorded using park-accepted scientific names that have been quality-checked and certified by subject-matter experts. Common names are based on the park's preferred common names list if available, or from the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS).

The species lists generated with this tool have gone through a certification process that involves evaluation and review of the species information by subject matter experts and park staff.

What's the difference?

A Checklist 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.
