State Rank

Numerical rank of relative indangerment for the species within the state based on the number of known occurrences.

S1 = Critically imperiled in the state because of extreme rarity or because of some factor(s) making it especiallly vulnerable to extirpation from the state.

S2 = Imperiled in the state because of rarity or because some factor(s) making it very vulnerable to extirpation from the state.

S3 = Rare or uncommon in the state.

S4 = Widespread, abundant, and apparently secure in the state, but of long-term concern.

S5 = Demonstrably widespread, abundant, and secure in the state, and essentially eradicable under present conditions.

S#S# =Indicates range of uncertainty of the exact numerical ranking for the species.

? = denotes ranking which is uncertain.

Global Rank

Numerical ranking of relative endangerment for the species worldwide. The categories are similar to those listed above for State Rank.
